Cory Williams is a technology professional with over 20 years of experience designing, developing and implementing high volume complex global systems for a worldwide corporation. She has expertise in the areas of BlockChain Technology, Internet of Things (IoT), architecture, automation and start-up business applications. Cory is recognized for her innovative use of technology to solve complicated problems in an increasingly complex global environment.
Cory has been a human rights activist her entire adult life. She has been an active part of the Carl Wilkens Fellowship since 2009. She raises awareness of genocide, mass atrocities and negative refugee experiences in her work with Members of Congress and state officials. She is currently developing a product, using BlockChain Technology, to raise global awareness of atrocities and improve the living conditions of those affected by them.
Recently Cory developed a patent pending application which can be used to record, track and manage materials mined in conflict zones and used in the manufacture of electronic devices. The purpose of her product is to enable the certification of those materials mined come from conflict free mines in the Eastern Congo. It took many months of research, architecture, development and political navigation to ensure the end to end process is represented. It took Cory’s expertise in architecture and programing to produce a product that is easy to use and cost effective. The hope is it will one day be adopted worldwide and for additional purposes.
