About this event

A few years ago, tech juggernaut Google sent shockwaves throughout Silicon Valley when they published the racial and ethnic makeup of their 20,000+ employees, fanning the flames of an already hot-button issue centered around a decidedly loaded question: Does tech have a diversity problem?

Since then, much ado has been made about what's been done (and what hasn't) to correct the issue. Articles and announcements about strategic new hires and branding initiatives are weekly occurrences, but diversity statistics at top companies remain objectively low.

In honor of Black History Month, join us for a GA-hosted panel discussion/Q&A featuring black professionals who work in the tech sphere, sharing their stories and discussing topics related to the hot-button issue of “Diversity in Tech”. How to level the playing field, how they overcame the accessibility gap, and how companies looking to diversify can go about finding the best talent.

We'll begin the panel with a light breakfast provided by KIND Bar and La Colombe Coffee Roasters!

What You’ll Take Away You will walk away with some key insights on the experiences of our panelists and best practices.

Why It Matters Let's continue to celebrate black excellence beyond just Black History Month.
