Anthony Mays’s Speech Topics

  • The Upside of Fear: Turning Imposter Syndrome into Strength

    Most people see imposter syndrome as a weakness to overcome, a condition that disproportionately impacts women and people of color. Yet despite the downsides, there are some upsides too. What if it can actually be your greatest strength?

    Learn from Anthony D. Mays' own journey from Compton as a abuse survivor and foster youth how he learned to harness imposter syndrome. We'll explore how to recognize its causes, how to own your accomplishments, and how to move forward productively and with humility.

  • Faith & Tech: Working Out Your Faith

    Faith has always been an integral part of the Black experience in America. Is there room in tech for faith? Anthony shares the challenges and opportunities of being a man of faith in an anti-God tech culture and how that challenges our understanding of diversity and inclusion.

  • The Six Steps: How to Solve Any Problem

    As an engineer at Google, Anthony used technology as a tool to solve big problems at scale. But technology is just a tool. To really be effective, smart people have a repeatable, reliable problem solving strategy. Whether in a grueling coding interview at FAANG companies or planning for a wedding in the middle of a pandemic, Anthony will reveal the six things that problem solvers do to help them overcome any problem.
