Many tech companies are working hard to create a more diverse workplace, but can public policy quicken this process? The halls of Congress are not bastions of diversity either; recent reports suggest that the senior levels of congressional offices are as devoid of diversity as tech boardrooms. Can the use of technology offer solutions to Congress? Can policy changes offer solutions to tech? This panel will explore the diversity in tech, diversity in government and the policy implications of each.
