Through groundbreaking innovation, it is reimagining how people access information, connect with each other, and changing the way we do business globally.
Despite its significant impact, the innovation economy still has a diversity and inclusion problem. Women, people of color, and other underrepresented groups continue to make up a small fraction of its founders, executives and investors. Yet studies show that tech companies with more diverse management yield higher financial returns.
The Atlantic will gather industry leaders and stakeholders to assess the health of the innovation economy and examine the diversity and inclusion challenges it faces. We’ll explore what ambitious initiatives are underway, the solutions that can make an impact, and how can we create lasting equality across the tech industry.
Due to current concerns about coronavirus in the local community, The Atlantic will not convene Inclusion & Tech, underwritten by Silicon Valley Bank, on Thursday, March 19, as previously scheduled.
We are eager to have the conversation we had planned; but, out of an abundance of caution for the health and wellbeing of our guests, staff, speakers, and partners, we will find an alternative date and time for this discussion. We’ll be in touch with additional details as soon as they become available.
