Session: Getting Past Diversity to Inclusion

Most companies and communities stop when they recruit diverse people. But many of these people leave soon after as their voices are not heard. When I look back on my own 30 year career as a tech-women, I did my best work when I was valued and included by my manager and organization. As organizations look to innovate faster, cheaper and better, how they recruit, prepare and equip leaders to be inclusive leaders creates the difference. I will cover what an inclusive leader does and what works to recruit, retain and develop a diverse team.
