Led by our Diversity In/Tech event held in Brooklyn, the second installment of the Technical.ly monthly podcast on how technology is changing cities takes a closer look at the inclusivity issues we’re reporting.
You can now subscribe to our podcast on iTunes here. Or listen below.
Fair warning, this second 38-minute conversation includes some rough audio, a sign of a still-new podcast. We’ll work out the kinks, so expect improvements each episode and stick with us. Find our first podcast here.
Again, as Technical.ly editor, I lead the conversation with audio from the Diversity In/Tech event and am joined by my lead reporters in our communities:
- Juliana Reyes of Technical.ly Philly
- Andrew Zaleski of Technical.ly Baltimore
- Brady Dale of Technical.ly Brooklyn
- Find the full speaker list from the event that prompted the discussion here.
- How to report on diversity shortcomings of tech communities without ignoring the many women and people of color in STEM, as described by Tech LadyMafia founder Aminatou Sow.

- Hiring inclusively — We hear from Stacey Marie Ishmael of the Financial Times and Jocelynne Rainey of the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
- Entrepreneurship diversity — We hear from Charlie O’Donnell of Brooklyn Bridge Ventures, who wasn’t part of this event but spoke about the impact of non-venture-backed businesses like retail and food services.
