A lot has been discussed around diversity in tech; still, lately we've been watching the increasing importance companies give to the topic when hiring, and the emergence of organisations primarily focused on bringing awareness to the matter. We gave all of them a voice on this session.
We talked about:
How can diversity change
the tech industry?
Why is there still a huge diversity gap in tech and within companies?
Tips and advices on how to balance diversity in tech
Our speakers tackled the issue and told us their experiences
