Join New Tech and UW Professional & Continuing Education for a special Diversity & Women in Tech event this month!

It’s no secret, companies with more diversity, whether it’s racial, ethnic, or gender, perform better than those with less. We’re excited to invite you to learn about the difficulties, successes, and benefits of diversity in the tech industry, and what we can all do to ensure opportunities are available for all of us, and make diversity the standard, not the exception.

Join us to discover the people, organizations and ideas that are building inclusion in your Seattle tech community from startups to enterprise companies like Microsoft, ebay, Starbucks, Twitter, T-Mobile and more. Come enjoy fun, light appetizers and beverages, great people and a panel interview with DEI champions in your community!
