Both “Learn to code” and “diversity in tech” are two topics at the heartbeat of innovation opportunities in the tech world. Both intersect at creating solutions empowering future diverse leaders in all STEM fields.
Bringing the best of both worlds together at Dreamforce, Salesforce will host The Opportunity Equality — Diversity in Coding Panel featuring key thought leaders and doers creating change in the tech industry.
The The Opportunity Equality — Diversity in Coding Panel will feature:
- Kimberly Bryant, Founder and CEO, Black Girls Code
- Albrey Brown, Founder, Telegraph Academy
- Brandon Nicholson, Executive Director, Hidden Genius Project
I’ll serve at the moderator:
Wayne Sutton, Co-Founder, Change Catalyst and Tech Inclusion Conference
The panel will cover topics such as:
- What challenges and opportunities have you experienced from working with tech companies to hire candidates from your programs and similar code schools?
- What lead you to focus on getting people of color involved in tech and coding?
- How do we transition kids from using apps to building apps?
( How are each of your organizations helping to diversify coding?
