On Wednesday, September 30th, alumni, parents, and friends joined the UVA Club of Washington, DC for an evening with Tamara Dottin (ENG ’09), founder of wellness-tech platform Huemon and formerly a Senior Software Engineer at OpenTable.
“A mind set in its own ways is wasted”: Leveraging technology for deeper levels of introspection and empathy in a fractured world
We learned about how Tamara, a software engineer, turned her skillset towards building an easy-to-access therapeutic outlet to help people combat loneliness and grow self-love. As a Black woman in tech, Tamara tapped into her own multidimensionality to create a space where people can unpack their unique personal experiences, and share in a way that different perspectives grow from open and honest connection. Tamar’s goal for Huemon is to foster a cultural shift in how we see and express vulnerability, self-reflection, and empathy.
