Event description
Half-day conference in Enschede to discuss gender equality and other topics related to LGBTI inclusion in the tech sector.

About this Event

Tech@workplacepride and Saxion invite you to the  "Diversity & Inclusion in (High)Tech Twente: LGBTI & Allies leading the way" on the 5th of November in Enschede.

In the technical workforce, there is a need to raise awareness of diversity and inclusion. In the near future, a lack of awareness will slow down growth and innovation power.
