Austin Convention Center

Maxine Williams, Global Director of Diversity for Facebook, has been behind industry-defining changes regarding diversity in tech, including Facebook’s public roll out of a Managing Bias training course, piloting of the company’s “diverse slate approach” (akin to the NFL’s “Rooney Rule), and the launch of TechPrep, a resource hub for Blacks, Latinos and their parents and guardians. In this keynote, she’ll share advice for how influencers and individuals can change the status quo, build inclusivity and ultimately drive more diversity in tech.
