About Event

The world of tech often speaks of creating a new, better world — but we cannot do that if the solutions we build propagate pain, punish the vulnerable, and create exponential imbalances in resources, power, and opportunity through the exclusion of diverse communities. Leaders must prioritize not just technology infrastructure, but the right mix of people informing the data.

In this lively discussion we’ll look at:

  • How diversity delivers value
  • Why real representation matters
  • How to prepare for the next phase of AI
  • How AI-driven scoring is used to rank candidates
  • Why hiring isn’t always based on skills or competencies alone and what we can do about it
  • How bias can be conscious, unconscious, and AI-driven.
  • …and much more!
