Feedback form is now closed.
This panel is dedicated to women of color in our tech community. Diversity initiatives vary from company to company and can take on many shapes depending on a company's size or age. Some women exist as the sole representation at their company and others can connect with large ERGs and networks. Hear these women's stories, their hopes for the future, and their ideas of how diversity programs and leadership could truly make a difference in our organizations no matter the size.
