Do Something (Anything) About Diversity in Tech Now.

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We're not going to spend much time talking about tech's diversity issues, if you're not yet aware of the problem there are lots of places for you to go educate yourself on it (and seriously, you should). This panel is a group of awesome folks who have made decisions to do things within their control to try to affect the situation. They're going to tell their stories briefly and then we're going to turn the attention away form the stage and to the audience. 

Our goal in this session is to help empower you to start doing something, tiny, huge or in-between, today.
