Yvette Scorse is the Communications Director of Byte Back, a dynamic Washington, DC based nonprofit providing a pathway of inclusive tech training that leads to living-wage careers. With the help of Yvette’s branding, thought leadership, and media strategy, Byte Back has transformed from a community organization into a nationally recognized digital inclusion innovator.
Before joining the Byte Back team in early 2015, Yvette managed social media and online communities for a capacity-building LGBTQ youth organization. She taught English and did some freelance journalism during five years in Madrid, Spain. Yvette earned her bachelor’s in journalism and Spanish, summa cum laude, from the University of Arkansas.
An active advocate for digital and IRL equity, Yvette serves as the co-chair of the Advisory Council of the Rainbow Youth Alliance. She was a member of the Digital Inclusion Week 2019 National Planning Committee and is on the National Digital Inclusion Alliance’s 2020 Net Inclusion Planning Committee. In fall 2019, she delivered a session on nonprofit branding at the Citi Foundation’s Community Progress Makers convening in New York and participated in a panel with nonprofit tech leaders at the Washington, DC Mayor’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer. Yvette will also be sharing her branding and communications expertise on two panels at the 2020 Nonprofit Tech Conference in Baltimore.
