Event Details

Diversity in Tech and Advertising: An Evolving Workplace and Market

The demographics of California and the United States are rapidly changing.  In the advertising and technology space, we face challenges on two different fronts.  The first challenge is to foster diversity where far too few women and minorities are represented in key areas of technology and management.  The second challenge is to ensure that the changing demographics don’t hinder our ability to reach our target audience.  IDAT has assembled industry leaders who will provide insights and vision on both of these challenges.  Please join us for an evening of networking and in depth discussion.

 Registration is Free!
