SC Tech Webinar Series: Diversity in Tech
October 21, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
How are our tech companies facing the reality of a lack of diversity in tech?
About this event
According to a 2021 study by Wiley, 68% of respondents [employees age 18-24] said they have felt uncomfortable in a tech role because of “their gender/ethnicity/socio-economic background or neurodevelopmental condition.” At the same time, US companies are spending more than ever before, $8 billion per year to be exact, on diversity and inclusion efforts.
So what gives? Join our panel of experts and a recent tech graduate, as they take on this challenging topic of diversity and inclusion in technology.
