Summit U.S. 2017 Diversity in Tech: The Path Less Traveled

As we ramp-up for Summit U.S. 2017, many of us look forward to one of our highly anticipated events, Diversity in Tech. This year's event will include a  great group of panelists discussing "The Path Less Traveled". The panelists include a diverse group of CEOs that will share how they created their own path in technology. From being underrepresented to overcoming stigmas, the event will provide insight into how they tackled some of those challenges. 

Our goal is to make this event as collaborative as possible. This is where we need your help. We are looking for YOUR questions

Not sure what to ask? Here are some examples: 

  • What are three things a company's culture must have to create an open and diverse organization? 
  • What is one piece of advice that's resonated with you throughout your professional journey? Did it impact your company values or company culture?

Use this discussion board as the place to ask your questions. Our post-event goal is to have one of the CEO panelists join this conversation and provide additional feedback.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the Diversity in Tech event!

What are the CEOs who have made it doing to enable and guide the diverse community who have not made it? Are there programs we can tap to?

How does one measure how diverse an organization is and what do you think it will take to get to a point where we no longer feel the need to measure?

Fears of which specific area one can take to invest as a tech CEO is a major drawback in any tech company's beginning. How do you help the CEO that want to begin a company  make right decision on the path to take?
