Diversity by Design: Including Women of Color in Tech

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Traditional organizational gender diversity efforts often ignore women of color. Through personal stories and data, our panel will illustrate what we're missing when existing conversations around diversity and inclusion in tech leave out women of color. We will propose ideas on how to best harness diversity and effectively include women of color in your organizations.
