Alicia V. Carr / Women Who Code Atlanta
Director, Atlanta Network
My vision and goal is to advance women in technology and grow confidence in changing their career to mobile development and technology opportunities. As a certified Life-Coach and CEO/Founder of Purple Evolution, Inc. (PEVO). I have been a strong advocate against family violence and crimes against women for many years. Being a child of domestic violence and losing a close friend to these unspeakable acts, led me to counseling and speaking out against domestic violence at any venue that would allow me.
PEVO was established in an effort to empower women of Domestic Violence with the essential tools required to develop a safe, secure exit plan. Furthermore, by shining the spotlight on this horrible crisis PEVO is bringing awareness to the community at large.
Being in touch with the digital age and my experience with technological advancements. My effort turned to creating a tool modern enough to attract millennial’s, but visual enough to live in the social media universe. The first option was creating a tool on the Apple IOS mobile platform that was becoming the go to program for mobile devices. For a little over a year I studied and worked with programmers to learn and develop an app that would give me access to what my goal and vision was. What was created was “The Purple Pocketbook” IOS mobile app.
Purple Evolution, Inc. (PEVO) formerly The Purple Pocketbook, was established as an effort to
empower women experiencing domestic violence with the essential tools required to develop
a safe, secure exit plan. As someone who’s had family and friends fall victim to domestic
violence, Alicia wants her app to help the millions suffering from abuse across the country.
