About Diversity in Technology 2018

Diversity in Technology is brought to you by the creators of the world’s largest Women in Tech event series. We empower individuals and assist companies in reshaping their culture to improve equality.

Diversity and inclusion is one of the biggest challenges facing the tech industry today, from the talent pipeline to products and services.

When businesses consist of people from the same backgrounds, they often leave diverse ideas, perspectives and considerations by the wayside. Those with visible and invisible disabilities, those from disadvantaged backgrounds and those who don’t fit the status quo are often left out.

This conference will connect and empower people from minority groups, provide insight into ground breaking technologies, and enable organisations to build truly diverse and inclusive cultures.
