Celebrating Black History Month, by recognizing 29 Innovators 


Yahoo, Director of Product


Growing up in Detroit, Erin Teague wanted to become an engineer for one of the Big Three automotive companies in her city. She majored in engineering in college, where she was the only black woman in her department and in her graduating class, and then became an engineer for Morgan Stanley. Instead of working in the automotive industry, Teague now works in tech. She oversees the Yahoo’s team of engineers who focus on user experience and management of products such as Flickr and Tumblr. Prior to joining Yahoo, Teague helped increase users of social media company Path.
