How to Ensure a Diverse & Inclusive Tech Culture

Thu., June 25, 2020, 1:00 PM

LOCATION: Online - Please see Event Page for Details

It’s no secret that diversity and inclusion are extremely important pillars for ensuring a collaborative, supportive, and innovative work culture. In fact, 64% of high-tech workers believe that organizations with a diverse workforce are more likely to produce world-class innovation than those more homogeneous in makeup (CompTIA). Beyond creative output, business benefits can go on to include staff loyalty, efficiency, attractiveness to new talent, and more.

But while 72% of tech founders believe in the importance of diversity, only 12% have five or more employees in tech roles who are from underrepresented groups. So how can tech organizations – and the teams within them – continue to address inclusion in the workplace in a way that initiates meaningful change?

Whether you already have a fully formed program, or you’re thinking about D&I for the first time, listen in as our panel of experts share their best tactics for planning, deploying, monitoring, and improving your diversity & inclusion strategies.
