Strategies for the Diversity & Inclusion Journey

What does it take for a tech company in Silicon Valley, a place where diversity is notoriously underwhelming, to consistently become the “Best Place to Work” for diversity and inclusion? The executive team at Periscope Data - ranked one of the top companies in the U.S. by Comparably for best diversity, leadership and professional development – will sit down with leading HR expert, Sara Sperling, to discuss their journey and the initiatives the company took from early on to ensure a collaborative, dynamic and inclusive culture through their growth. In addition to debating the current state of diversity in tech, they’ll share their hands-on approaches to prioritizing these initiatives, closing the gender wage gap, and the the business imperatives they’ve seen as a result.
