How much do you actually know about underrepresentation?
Most people already know that the tech industry looks incredibly homogeneous and lacks diversity in every layer of it. But the contrib/uting factors and the consequences of this picture are so hard to measure that it’s still rare to have an honest discussion about the importance of diversity and reach an agreement on what can be done about it or if anything should be done at all. This talk brings a complete overview and tons of data on underrepresented groups in tech, the causes of underrepresentation, why the lack of diversity is a problem in the first place, the impact on your business and how important we, as leaders, are to improve this picture. The numbers are mostly focused on (the lack of) women in the tech industry, but many examples apply to other underrepresented groups and even other industries.
