Panel 1 at SXSW: ‘Byte by Byte: Building an Inclusive Tech Workforce’


The tech ecosystem is facing a gap in the workforce and we need to ensure diverse candidates are trained to keep pace with innovation. This gap can be bridged by harnessing private sector resources and combining them with community-based tech training.


Panel 2 at SXSW EDU: Access and Education for Universal AI Success’


How can we foster inclusive cultures where everyone has tech access and education to thrive in the future of work?
