Historically speaking, the tech industry hasn’t been the most representative—for an industry built on forward thinking, there are still some areas where they fall short.
Technology becomes more accessible when leadership is representative of the end users; AKA we need more diversity in the rooms where decisions are made.
In order for technology to add value for end users, it needs to be built by people who mirror their experiences, identities and perspectives.
In this panel, we cover matters of accessibility, gaps in representation, lack of opportunity for marginalized groups, unconscious biases, and how all of those things have an impact on the technology we use today.
Each of our panelists will dive into their strategies for dismantling biases in tech, adding more seats to the leadership table, and paving the way for the next generation to build technology through a more accessible lens.
