Tags: Diversity in tech
It’s not news that companies across the technology industry have struggled with diversifying their workforces. That’s why it’s more crucial than ever for each of us to understand the scope of the situation and what we can do both together and individually to make it better.
Diversity in tech isn’t just about hiring people of different colors, races, religions, or genders—it’s also about creating a workplace that celebrates and benefits from a diverse set of knowledge, skills, and life experiences.
It’s a subject I am passionate about—personally and professionally—which is why I’m excited to invite you to a breakfast and panel we are hosting during Dreamforce next week to dive deeper into this topic with the broader cloud community.
