National Diversity Council is proud to present Tech Diversity Week!
T ech Diversity Week pulls in diverse sets of people within higher education, tech companies and junior & high school education to celebrate and advance diversity in the technology industry over a five-day period of events, including fairs, concerts, panels, workshops, and award ceremonies. The occasion will serve as an opportunity to bring together the brightest minds and let them bounce ideas off one another concerning tech, diversity, inclusion and the cross-sections in between.
Entrepreneurs will be given a platform to market their bold ideas. Universities will be connected to a pool of upstart youth who will soon become these schools’ most powerful undergraduate classes. Tech giants, start-ups and every business in between will be able to tap into the diverse backgrounds and outlooks that exist untouched in under-represented communities. And anyone interested in social responsibility will be right in the middle of the crest of present and future innovators who will help push the world that much closer towards an arc of social justice and equality.
Annually, Tech Diversity Week is set in the Spring across multiple cities where the tech industry is ever-present and/or rapidly emerging. Each location will host its own unique events with exclusive entertainers, speakers and awards that match the cities’ individual flavor. Additionally, Tech Diversity Week will bring a surge of travel and tourism for merchants and restaurant owners to these cities due to the boost in customer spending surrounding the occasion.
