Diversity & Inclusion: Buzzword, Movement, or BS?

Speakers

We hear it time and time again, shouted from a lot of companies rooftops, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION! Yet, most tech companies employ less than 5% of people of color. That stat alone makes you think, what does diversity and inclusion actually mean? Join Black Tech Unplugged, hosted by Deena McKay, to discuss why diversity and inclusion is still a buzzword, what the initiative means for black people, and how everyone can help move diversity and inclusion into a movement.
