HCIL BBL: Discussion: Diversity in Tech

Event Details
  • Date:


HCIL (2105 Hornbake, South Wing)


Join us for a conversation about diversity in tech. We’ll explore disparities in the field, consider the causes of this issue, and discuss what we as HCI educators, researchers, and professionals can do to close this gap. Before joining us on Thursday, please take a some time to read Vauhini Vara’s Bloomberg Businessweek article Why Doesn’t Silicon Valley Hire Black Coders? and look over some statistics from the Information is Beautiful and the Wall Street Journal on this topic. We’ll use these resources as a starting point for our conversation.
