Overview:​ At this exclusive panel event, we host thought-leaders to explore new intersections between diversity and technology. Together, we discuss how their communities have been impacted by the rise of tech, ways they’ve adapted and innovated along the way, and what they expect to see in the future.

What You’ll Take Away: Gain insight and inspiration from a diverse panel of experts in specific fields and hear first-hand how diversity is transforming technology. Expand your understanding of today’s tech-based world, and fuel your own ideas for the future.

Featured Experts: Leaders in the diversity community will break down the biggest challenges and opportunities they face with the rise of new technology, and explain how their teams adapt to the fast pace of innovation.

Join the discussion along with GA and a panel of trailblazers in tech. We'll learn their stories and hear what they're doing about diversity in the industry.

Why It Matters: The omnipresence of technology has rapidly transformed lives over the last decade (remember, the iPhone was only released in 2007). Now, it’s rare to go about a regular day without interacting with tech — whether it’s an alarm app that wakes you up, your Nest Thermostat-regulated apartment, or the software you use at work. Maintaining an open dialogue about diversity in a safe space and being able to elaborate on ways for collaboration in various industries has never been more important — both at work and at play.
