SOLVED: How To Foster Diversity through Community

The lack of diversity in Tech is widely known but solutions have been scarce. Join us as representatives from Google, WhiteHat, ChickTech, and Digital Creative Institute discuss how we can build community that leads to a more inclusive workforce. We will explore specific engagement strategies focused on local community initiatives that support an organization’s broad diversity programs, as well as the role that coaching and mentoring plays in creating optimal outcomes.
