In January, Technical.ly Brooklyn is hosting Diversity In/Tech, a tech access afternoon conference focused on increasing the inclusion of underrepresented groups in technology fields in Brooklyn and beyond. This afternoon of dialogue and exchange will help identify issues around diversity in technology and steps that can be taken to correct them.
The event will be structured around a series of panel discussions on the state of STEM education, diverse practices in building a workforce and entry points for entrepreneurship. MakerBot President Jenny Lawton will present a keynote on her experiences with robotics programs for youth, hiring a strong workforce and building a business.
