While the tech industry produces so much of the world’s innovations, diversity remains a challenge at all levels ranging from startups to world-renowned enterprises.
In the second installment of VMware’s Engage and Empower series — where we dive into various facets of diversity and inclusion in the tech industry — we are hosting a panel focused on celebrating Black voices in tech.
Please join moderator Vykky Howard, Head of Social Media at VMware Tanzu, as she speaks with panelists Kaya Thomas, Senior Engineer at Calm & Founder of We Read Too; Derric Moses, Senior Solutions Architect at OneMagnify; James Taylor, Principle Engineer II at Comcast; and Gregory Green, Advisory Data Solutions Architect at VMware.
In the panel, they will discuss:
- How they built a career in tech
- What challenges BIPOC face in the industry and how they’ve overcome them
- Resources for BIPOC starting their careers in tech
- How companies can better empower BIPOC in the industry
