As the technology industry – the most innovative and revolutionary economic engine – drives the world into the future, women, people of color cannot be left behind.
Silicon Valley and the tech industry, at its best, can be a tremendously positive change agent for the world; at its worst, can hold on to old patterns that exclude people of color and women from opportunity and advancement and hold back progress.
The tech industry has demonstrated that it can solve some of the most challenging complex problems in the world. Inclusion is a complex problem – if we put our collective minds to it, we can solve this one, too.
In today’s world, when people of color will soon be California’s majority population, and the new majority of America by 2040, diversity and inclusion drive the consumer marketplace and give companies the competitive advantage they need to succeed.
