Title: Raising awareness with diversity and improving engagement with inclusion

Who: De’onn Griffin

Summary: Although women make up nearly half of the global workforce, women are only 31% of IT employees. Unlike other professions where women have made significant strides to reach leadership positions, only 22% of IT leaders are women. This WIT session will be a discussion about what we can do today to start to shift the tides of diversity and create an inclusive environment no matter where we sit in the organization.
