7:50 – 8:30 pm – Diversity Roundtable Panel
Diversity means having different ideas about what makes a healthy, productive, and inclusive team or company culture. We also bring different skills and assets–from being multi-lingual, multi-cultural, gender-diverse, or queer-conscious, having served in combat or the armed forces, or having adapted to a physical or neurological disability or built a personal leadership style that in counterbalance to the norms of a dominant group. In this panel, tech professionals from underrepresented groups share their leadership and experience from the front lines of the movement for a powerful and integrated tech sector.
