Ask the Expert: Moving the Needle: A Discussion on Diversity and Inclusion
Historically, IT has struggled with diversity and inclusion at all levels of leadership. Many corporate IT departments have normalized superhuman efforts, and the staff has cast itself in the metaphorical language of superheroes which may discourage women in particular from choosing a technology career path or staying on that path for very long. During these discussions, attendees will engage in open discussion with fellow attendees to share their personal thoughts, insights, and experiences as well as create action items that they can take away from the event to make their workplaces and neighborhoods more inclusive environments.
