I was fortunate enough to participate in a panel discussing how top tech companies are addressing D&I. The conversation and insight shared among the panelists, as well as the engagement with those on the call, made for a very insightful and actionable conversation. Thank you, Tech in Motion, for creating these conversations around incredibly important topics that will shape the future of the tech industry.
