Technology is one of Massachusetts’ largest and fastest growing industries, but also one of the least diverse. In the summer of 2020, tech companies pledged to create a more diverse and equitable workplace. Nearly 18 months later...what, if anything, has changed?
Join us Thursday, February 17th, at 7pm for The State of Race: Tech’s Diversity Mandate, a live virtual forum hosted by The World Executive Producer Dan Lothian with panelists Pariss Chandler, CEO and Founder of Black Tech Pipeline; David Delmar Sentíes, Founder of Resilient Coders and Pranshu Verma, technology reporter at The Boston Globe. They’ll discuss the current state of race in Boston’s tech economy and the truth about being a person of color in a predominantly White field.
After the conversation, audience members will have the chance to join a 30-minute break out session with our panelists on Zoom for a Q&A and to learn more about the state of diversity in tech.
This is a forum about race and inequality in partnership with The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, The Black Economic Council of Massachusetts, NAACP Boston Branch and GBH World.
The event is free, but space is limited and reservations are required.
