Where are the women?
Women, people of colour and other minorities are underrepresented and sometimes feel unwelcome in tech. We need to fix this.
Diversity is a problem in tech. Minority groups lack visibility and representation, once (and if) hired, are often either assimilated or excluded. We've been spending a lot of time arguing about diversity, lately. It's time we took a closer look at the dialectic in the diversity debate – and see what’s helpful, and what isn’t.
This talk* will help you understand and begin to fix the diversity issue in technology and beyond. It'll help you contribute to our community becoming more accessible, inclusive, and welcoming for everyone.
