Heather Wilde - How to Close the Diversity Gap (or, How Not to Perpetuate Bro Culture in Tech)


Inclusion has been proven to have direct, measurable effects on stability and success in businesses, large and small. Indeed, most organizations actively pursue diverse representation in their workplace, but this won’t necessarily ensure that all employees feel included.
Unconscious bias is part of the problem -- but not the only one -- especially in areas like recruitment, promotion, and performance management as well as being a major barrier in efforts to improve diversity and inclusion. The Covid-19 pandemic has also added additional strain to the pre-existing social challenges, which make it difficult for programs to gain any ground.
In this talk, we'll cover the problems and pitfalls in creating diversity programs, and why it's so important to keep trying to build a culture of inclusion in your team.
