Tech is changing for good. Those who aren’t ahead will get left behind.

To get ahead, learn more about the future of tech work culture and meet others who are working toward inclusivity at the Most Diverse Tech Hub reception on Thursday, Nov. 17 at Perpay’s Market Street headquarters.

Philly aims to become the country’s, you guess it, most diverse tech hub — and to get there, we at curated a year of programming that allowed our city’s employers to connect directly to Black and brown technologists and actionable DEI knowledge from industry consultants and leaders. Through this work, we’ve learned that a fully inclusive and anti-racist organization is one that reflects full participation and mutual power across racial and economic groups and cultural identities.

Join and our partner 1Philadelphia for the Most Diverse Tech Hub reception, our conclusion to our current initiative to increase Black and brown participation in tech.
