Diversity in IT is not only good to create better teams, it is actually an economic necessity for companies. The Labor Department predicts there will be 1 million new, unfilled jobs in the tech industry by 2020.
With women and minorities making up a small percentage of the IT workforce and their numbers increasing in the general workforce, it makes sense to attract these groups to our field. But,we have not been successful in the past 40 years in creating this pipeline of candidates through traditional methods so what do we need to do differently.
Join our panelists who are part of a growing movement of non-profits working to change the discussion among women and minorities to learn more about their programs, what lessons they are learning about working with these groups, how they are helping to teach organizations to create diverse talent and potentially, how you can help solve this issue.
