“Discovering personal taste is a journey of self-discovery. Enjoy the ride.” — @iamdonte. As one of the company's founders, Donte is the VP at digital product studio Substantial. He is dedicated to creating an environment that supports and inspires his team, and to ensuring that Substantial is an active member of its various communities. He's Vice Chair of the executive committee for the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce, helping to shape the neighborhood where he lives and works for the better. He is also on the board of directors for Unloop, a nonprofit teaching tech skills to incarcerated individuals to reduce recidivism. He is an occasional public speaker, usually on the topic of diversity & inclusion or company culture.
