Building Diversity and Inclusion within the Tech Workforce

Per Scholas created Diverse by Design as a national conversation series focused on increasing diversity and inclusion in technology jobs.

The series brings together c-suite thought leaders to discuss best practices and collaboratively develop solutions to forge a more direct path for businesses to attract, develop, and retain a more diverse and inclusive workforce.

The challenge ahead is to reimagine what immediate investments are required to leverage talent, learning partnerships, and demand-driven training to build a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive economy that is more adaptable and resilient.
