MTSU LGBT+ Conference

The tech industry has a reputation for its lack of diversity, but some companies are trying to change that. This panel will explore what "diversity and inclusion" means in the tech workplace and provide an overview of the types of initiatives that tech companies are undertaking to increase diversity and inclusion in the workforce. Panelists will also provide insight on the questions to ask during the interview process to determine whether a company is committed to creating an inclusive culture.

Dr. Candace Warner, Professor of Sociology and Founder/CEO of people3, Inc. moderated the discussion with panelists: Sandi Hoff, Vice President of Education at the Nashville Technology Council, Kimberly Tate of Asurion, Carnell Elliott of Dell Nashville, and Auralia Baggett, Research Analyst for Soluto Lab at Asurion.
