Description:

Given the underrepresentation of diverse groups in the tech industry, and given that diverse workplaces lead to better products and more successful companies, many companies are undertaking efforts to improve diversity in their workforce. However, this requires the collection of sensitive information (from both applicants and employees). In the US, many companies consider such data “kind of” sensitive or private, but believe that we should collect it for the greater good. This runs counter, however, to laws or norms in other countries, where diversity and inclusion might not be considered important, or where the collection of such information is prohibited. How do companies address this potential conflict? In addition, if they can collect such information, how do they protect it, especially given that some data sets are so small that they can't really be anonymized for reporting purposes? And how do they give people control over information about themselves, including the right to revoke or delete it? Join us for an important conversation about the tension between two competing goods."
