About This Event

Being an ally is more than a label. It’s about being willing to act with and for others in pursuit of creating equity. We can start by recognizing the unearned advantages many of us receive, take responsibility and break the current patterns. We all have an equally important role in this – and by doing so, we help level the playing field by creating more inclusive and fair workplace environments.

Join General Assembly Atlanta for a panel discussion on allyship and diversity in the tech industry. Our experts will discuss their career paths, how they view the current landscape, and share their advice for how to be more inclusive in this industry.
