Event description
Really? Join the debate about how we can take concrete actions to create a common ground where all humans are represented fairly in tech!

About this Event

Really? Yes or No? Let´s get real. Screw just talks about how to "fix the women" and "diversity in tech". Let´s debate and then take action.

Come by after work for a 1 hour session to hear some tough debate and really insighful viewpoints on this issue.

Who will you meet?
