Moving Beyond Performative Racial Equity in Tech

Against the backdrop of the police killings and Black Lives Matter protests of 2020, many leaders and companies in the  tech industry made collective vows to implement fundamental changes in pursuit of diversity, equity, and inclusion. A year later, beyond the black squares on social media and statements claiming solidarity with those fighting racial injustices, many of these commitments have been largely unmet, if not wholly abandoned. Join us in an honest, authentic conversation with two of the most thoughtful voices working towards racial equity in tech. Nicole Sanchez (Vaya Consulting) and Albrey Brown (Airtable) will lead us in a discussion on the necessary understanding and solutions that we can enact in our own workplaces to ensure accountability and progress towards racial equity.
