Event Details

The topic of gender & diversity in STEM fields has been hitting a crescendo in recent months, but the discussion is far from over—in fact, in many ways it’s only just beginning. While this may seem like only a social justice concern, these issues have a real and negative impact on how we conduct business, as well as how effective we are both as teams and as individuals.

So, please join us for our first open forum for people interested in learning more about gender & diversity issues and technology. Learn what barriers and biases exist in our industry. Find out why being more inclusive attracts better talent to your business, and much more.

This free event allows anyone to come in, ask questions, or simply listen to and learn from the discussion between our panelists and the audience.


Sponsors

We thank Juniper for sponsoring the event’s catering, and CnC Cupcakes for providing some mini-cupcakes for the attendees!

 

Accessibility

The event venue is wheelchair accessible, and thanks to the sponsorship of Lookout we will have an ASL interpreter on hand as well.
