Fundamentals of Diversity and Inclusion for Technologists

Enhancing diversity and inclusion in every aspect of technology is an essential conversation everyone should be a part of. In an increasingly interconnected world, we have a shared responsibility to ensure technology is a force that works to benefit everyone, countering structural sources of inequity where needed.

This session aims to jump start your personal diversity and inclusion journey by explaining the basics in simple terms with relevant examples for technologists. Concepts covered will include unconscious bias, privilege, equity, allyship, covering and microaggressions.
