Austin Convention Center


In 2014, the world’s leading tech companies released their workforce employment data for the first time, revealing just how vastly underrepresented people of color and women are in the sector. Nevertheless, the release of this data offered an important starting point to develop and carry out strategies to diversify the tech and entrepreneurship pipeline. This panel explores current and emergent efforts and thinking behind ways to create a tech sector that is led by and works for all.
