Inclusion In Tech 2017

America’s technology industry has revolutionized the world, and strives to further improve our lives through innovation and positive change each and every day.

Despite these aspirations, the industry faces many challenges that it still struggles to solve. Women, people of color, and other underrepresented groups continue to make up a small fraction of its workforce. And some in the industry have questioned whether efforts to turn the tide have gone too far. This backlash, along with numerous reports of sexism throughout the Valley, have left many wondering how to create real belonging in the innovation capital.

Join The Atlantic as we gather industry leaders and stakeholders to examine diversity and inclusion in tech, and explore what change is needed to create lasting equity for all who work in the field.
