Diversity in Tech

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The startup community talks a good game when it comes to inclusion, but the preponderance of high-growth entrepreneurs and the people they employ are overwhelmingly male and overwhelmingly white. This needs to change. The homogeneity of tech stifles innovation and weakens the bottom line.
