Programming Diversity into the Tech Industry
Tackling inequality and underrepresentation in tech is a constant challenge facing the industry today, and something tech businesses of all shapes and sizes have at the top of their agenda. Handle Recruitment and Kobalt Music are pleased to be hosting a meet-up in which a varied panel of experts will discuss their own experiences and expertise from varying perspectives.
- How have organisations tackled creating a welcoming culture & a genuine sense of belonging?
- What challenges have they faced building diversity programs and gaining buy-in from the business?
- How can start-ups drive forward a truly diverse culture from the get-go - and is it possible to translate these progressive ways of working within more mature business structures?
As we struggle to find the next generation of tech workers, we need to find ways to attract and retain people from all backgrounds to work in the industry. But are we putting in place strategies to actively seeking out diverse talent? And if so is our organisation culturally diversity-ready?
