Insights Series: Diversity and Inclusion in Tech - Where the Industry Needs to Go from Here
Thursday, October 28, 2021 (7:30 AM - 10:30 AM) (MDT)
Minorities represent more than 40% of the U.S. population, but only 30% of the technology workforce. How can companies promote greater diversity and support an inclusive company culture? And how do these efforts improve hiring? Join us for an honest conversation on how you can implement a D&I strategy that results in real and meaningful change, and how this can improve talent recruitment and retention efforts.
This event will take place in-person, at General Assembly located in the INDUSTRY RiNo Station. Following the panel discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to take a tour of the space and learn more about General Assembly. General Assembly requires all event attendees to wear face masks and social distance when attending an event in their space - CTA will be following these guidelines for this event.
