2017 NCWIT Summit - “Does Your Company Have a Technical Culture, and Does It Impede or Improve Your Diversity Efforts?” WA/EA Workshop by Elizabeth K. Eger and Jill Reckie
Are technical cultures different from company-wide or other business cultures? If so, how does that culture impact your approach to broader diversity and inclusion efforts? This interactive session will examine what, if anything, makes technical cultures unique and if these cultural aspects present challenges for diversity and inclusion efforts. We will also consider how employees can experience company cultures differently based on their identities and organizational roles, and discuss how these insights might inform and enhance your efforts.
