Excerpt

Roundtable discussion to share tips and ideas that can be implemented for empowering everyone to (re-)build an inclusive, supportive tech culture.

Description

Drawing on personal experiences, participants will discuss what we can do to improve the pre-existing tech culture. Our focus will be on identifying problematic behaviors within our communities and how they were (mis-) handled, responding to microaggressions from supervisors/ peers, and ways of providing positive reinforcement for community members who promote a healthy, inclusive culture.
