Abstract

Diversity is one of the most important topics in tech right now. But many don’t know how to effectively change the ratio. Prioritizing how to do it right and make it work for your organization is important, but the sticky factor through inclusion is just as crucial. We’ll review the top reasons why diversity is stalled in tech and what we can do to make it better.

Topics:
How do we do it right?
How can they align with business goals?
Top reasons employers don’t hire diverse candidates.
How your culture is hurting inclusivity.
