About the Event

Diversity in Tech

As we observe Black History Month, it is important to acknowledge the current lack of diversity within the education IT sector – and find ways of addressing this. Improving the representation of marginalised groups in tech is not only a moral imperative; there are well documented benefits to workplace happiness and productivity in diverse environments, in which colleagues feel more comfortable and are less likely to conform to groupthink. 

Featuring guest speaker the Rt Hon. Stuart Lawrence – motivational speaker and author of Find Your Voice and Silence Is Not An Option – and Samuel Massiah, CIO at the University of Northampton, join us for this webinar exploring the challenges to under-represented groups in our sector, and the role we can all play in removing those barriers and ensuring our community reflects our wider society.
