How Diversity Makes Tech A Stronger Industry [PSFK 2014]
Why diversity in leadership is the key to innovation and success.
PSFK Managing Editor Dory Carr-Harris brought together Nikki Kauffman, Rachel Sklar, John Gerzma and Jessica Lawrence for a panel on how to achieve diversity in the workplace at PSFK Conference 2014.
The panel discussed the qualities of ideal leadership and how diversity can be attained for a better functioning workplace. This diversity starts with the understanding that the tech industry’s influence has expanded far beyond tech-related mediums.
Lawrence, executive director of New York Tech Meetup, says she has seen a shift in tech jobs that reaches people out to people outside of the tech industry.
