AITP-RTP Meeting – All Together Now: Leveraging Talent to Increase Diversity in Tech
Code the Dream envisions a world in which tech innovation comes from all of us and benefits all of us. In this presentation, we will explore how to uplift the voices and prepare individuals from marginalized communities for varied roles in the tech sector and see how they can play an active role in creating, designing and developing the technology for tomorrow and the technology that addresses the needs of all members of our communities.
