A Seat at the Table: How Tech Policy Groups Can Welcome Diverse Talent
February 19 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Public Knowledge is hosting a webinar to discuss its “Diversity in Early-Career Tech Policy Roles: Challenges and Opportunities” Report. The report explores the types of early career opportunities available in tech policy nonprofits and the diversity within these roles, as well as the steps organizations are taking to increase diversity.
Panelists will discuss approaches to increasing diversity within organizations, the value of mentorship, and perspectives on the state of diversity in tech policy and its implications for communities of color.
This webinar is open to all, and we especially encourage the attendance of people who are able to influence diversity efforts within their organizations.
