We are beyond excited to welcome PNW IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access) to our community under their new name: New Tech DEI. This group is a monthly meet-up to share thoughts on diversity, equity, and inclusion from those leading the work at an individual, manager, executive, nonprofit or volunteer basis. Please join in on the first meeting under the new name on 9/23 at 10:30am.
Christy will still facilitate the monthly meeting. The event is open to anyone wanting to make real change happen.
Hear what Christy Johnson, Founder of New Tech DEI, had to say:
PNW IDEA has merged with New Tech to combine our communities and have a greater positive impact on the issues that truly matter. We’re joining forces so we can do more together. We’ll still have the monthly zoom, and then there will be more events where we can share data and take our work to the next level.
Our Vision is still the same. We believe the PNW is:
A region where women and underrepresented minorities are able to pursue opportunities to participate productively in ways that are meaningful for them and that contribute to our local economy and society, and where employers and community organizations have a multitude of ways to create and improve real opportunities for those wanting opportunity and facing bias.”
