Tracy Chou

CEO, Block Party

Tracy Chou is an entrepreneur and software engineer, known for her work advocating for diversity and inclusion in tech. She is currently the founder and CEO of Block Party, which aims to fight abuse and harassment online. She is also a co-founder of Project Include, a non-profit that works with startups on diversity and inclusion towards the goal of creating a tech ecosystem where everyone has a fair chance to succeed. In 2013, her Medium article “Where are the numbers?” helped jumpstart the practice of tech companies disclosing their diversity data. Ms. Chou was previously an engineer at Pinterest, Quora, and the U.S. Digital Service, has been recognized as MIT Technology Review 35 Innovators under 35 and Forbes Tech 30 under 30, and was a Terman Fellow and Mayfield Fellow at Stanford University. Chou studied computer science at Stanford University with a specialization in machine learning and artificial intelligence.[4] During that time, she interned at Google and Facebook, and went on to receive a master’s degree in computer science. Describing her undergraduate experience studying computer science, Chou said she felt, “really out of place” and less confident than her male colleagues at the beginning and took time to realize that she was outperforming most of them in coursework.
