Intersectionality in Tech: How to Create a More Equitable Industry
What makes an equitable and inclusive workplace? What can companies do beyond surface-level diversity initiatives? This work begins with centering intersectionality - acknowledging the many intersections of race, sex, gender, class, age, and all of our unique identifiers that shape our experiences. In this session, we will define intersectionality and learn how to apply it to the workplace.
