Recent demographic data of major tech companies by gender and ethnic diversity show that minorities account for just a tiny fraction of most of the companies’ workforces. No company could say that women made up 50 percent of its employees.
That’s why Morgan State University is hosting a discussion on the future of tech. The speaker series features Maxine Williams, global director of diversity at Facebook, and Yolanda Mangolini, who currently leads Google’s global Diversity & Inclusion function.
The moderated panel discussion on “The Future of Tech and Your Role In It!” will be held Wednesday, March 29, 2017, in the Earl Graves School of Business Building Auditorium and starts at 6:30 p.m. The debate will be followed by a Q&A with Facebook’s Maxine Williams & Google’s Yolanda Mangolini.
