Diversity and Inclusion in Tech

Wednesday 27th June at 11:00AM Europe/London

Diversity issues related to the high-tech industry can't be missed in the news today. Whether it is a story about pay inequality among men and women, or research showing that the industry workforce composition is largely homogeneous, the headlines are unavoidable. CompTIA's new research found that 7 in 10 people working in the high-tech industry today say they have heard or read about workplace diversity issues in the last 12 months. According to the report nearly eight in ten high-tech industry workers surveyed by the tech industry association say they are satisfied with their organisation's diversity efforts and a further 87 per cent say they've worked in a department comprised of a diverse group of employees in the last year. Tech companies over the past few years have been ramping up their diversity recruitment and hiring efforts, as well as instituting formal processes and best practices such as issuing annual diversity reports. Reports state that companies also have to do more to retain diverse workers, which only further emphasises the importance of organisations taking responsibility for inclusion, with the tone set from the top. Sign up now to our Diversity and Inclusion in Tech webinar to hear our panellists discuss: • The importance of diversity and inclusion in tech • Tips for improving diversity efforts in talent acquisition • Strategies for creating an inclusive community in the workplace • Tools for nurturing a diverse workforce and supporting professional growth in the IT industry and beyond
