The lack of diversity in the tech industry is a well-documented problem. Women only hold 11% of executive positions at Valley companies and compared to their overall presence in the US labor force, African-Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans are underrepresented in the tech industry by 16-18%. Now many are adding political diversity to the list of problems the tech industry must address. This panel will discuss the state of diversity in the industry and where more work needs to be done.
