Founder’s Welcome


It is my pleasure to welcome you to our 2020 Diversity Tech Week from April 20-22, 2020 in Houston, Texas! This year’s theme is Maximizing Talent!

This three-day event recognizes the experiences and achievements of leaders in technology who are breaking barriers and setting high standards for themselves and others. The purpose of this event is to ensure individuals and companies possess the tools they need for success by sharing diversity and inclusion best practices and essential leadership skills in the technology industry.Throughout the next three days you will be able to engage in several panel discussions and breakout sessions, and hear from our premier keynote speakers including former CEO of Hewlett Packard (HP) Enterprise Carly Fiorina, CEO of AT&T Business Anne Chow, FBI Director James Comey, Actor Tony Plana, former NBA executive and Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, and Political Commentator Donna Brazile. We also have the honor of recognizing influential tech executives who have exemplified leadership excellence and championed diversity and inclusion throughout their careers.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their financial contributions and support because without them this event would not be a success. We would also like to thank our speakers for being a part of this tremendous event and sharing their experiences in the tech field. We hope you enjoy your time with us this week as we strive for a diverse tech field and a more inclusive society.
