About Rochelle and Drew:

Dr. Rochelle Newton is an Assistant Divisional Chief Operating Officer (IT) for Duke University Health Technology Solutions. She holds a doctorate in Higher Education with a concentration in Leadership. Dr. Newton has worked in IT since 1977 in both the private and public sectors. As technology has evolved, she had developed an analytical perspective of technology at the intersection of education and race. She founded Newton Advocacy & Strategic IT Consulting (NASITC). NASITC is a diversity consulting firm. Our work is to simply changethe narrative at the intersection of diversity and information technology (IT). Dr. Newton’s diversity philosophy includes access, advocacy, equality, opportunity, and productive outcomes for individuals and organizations.

Dr. Newton is an avid John Grisham fan (she has read every book he has written). American History is her reading passion. She has been the keynote or paid speaker for numerous events examining the impact of IT within underrepresented groups. Dr. Newton has formed a collaborative group within her organization that brings STEM staff from all across the university together to discuss technology, gender, and race. She also created a small group of women to join in a monthly common purpose – STEM and gender. She serves on the board of several entities where STEM, race, and education are central. Dr. Newton co-chaired Duke’s TechExpo in 2014 and has completed numerous training on diversity, professional development, and emerging technologies. She has developed an interdisciplinary course that analyzes gender, poverty, and race through the lens of technology.

Drew has worked in Information Technology for over 20 years, and currently works at Duke University as a Sr. Systems Analyst. While Drews degree is in Theatre, he has a passion for open source technology, and has worked in Information Technology for his adult life. Drew's areas of focus are Linux, Kubernetes, DevOps, and Security Technologies. If he's not sitting at the computer, you may find him catching up on the latest horror films!
