It was great to get to be part of the MnTech Tech Talent event today with Caroline Karanja as she shared the details of the new Tech Inclusion Alliance, and then a brief panel discussion with Tarek Tomes and myself on what companies are doing that is working to bring more diverse talent into technology.
My key points:
- Companies need to solve this problem or it will limit their growth as they are unable the available talent pool isn’t growing fast enough.
- Companies can do more to lower the barriers to bringing talent into their organization. Technology choices are hiring choices!
The video for the session is up now.
