Beyond Brogrammers: Diversity in Tech & VC

Mar 11, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Founders breaking into the tech world today are presented with an obvious lack of diversity. The”Bro Culture” has been the well documented stereotype associated with tech. From investors to founders, sometimes tech seems like a 21st-century version of the “He-Man Woman-Haters Club,” but just as those little rascals came to find, the key to success is embracing differences rather than shunning them.
In this panel, these investors and founders will discuss what role their diverse backgrounds and lifestyles have played in their own journeys. It’s diversity vs. conformity as these panelists discuss what kind of impact straying from the tech stereotype has had on their brands and investments.
