Diverse by Design CA [Mountain View]
Oct 25, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm PDT
On October 25th, Per Scholas and the Information Technology Senior Management Forum (ITSMF) will host the next Diverse by Design convening at Google’s Global Headquarters in Mountain View, CA. This fourth event in the Diverse by Design series will examine diversity through an entrepreneurial lens, asking —how can technology leadership, on the cutting edge of social, cultural and technological change, apply the innovative spirit of design thinking to the development of new hiring and HR practices that make diversity and inclusion core to business.
Building on the success of prior convenings, Diverse by Design Mountain View will bring together hundreds of business and nonprofit leaders, HR managers and recruiters, and technology professionals to share best practices on how to develop, strengthen and scale corporate practices and policies that encourage diversity and inclusion to take hold within the tech workforce.
Diverse by Design is hosted by Per Scholas, a national nonprofit that drives social change in communities across the country through rigorous and tuition-free technology training, in association with the Information Technology Senior Management Forum (ITSMF), the only national organization dedicated exclusively to cultivating professional talent among African-American technology executives.
Leaders from Google, HP and Salesforce are confirmed as speakers with many more to be announced. Space is limited for this event. For more information and to register, please visit www.diversebydesign.org.
