Detroit’s population is more than 85% people of color and Latinx. But how diverse are its major corporations and growing startups? The lack of diversity can have a serious impact on our city’s residents, economy and opportunities. Learn more about how companies are becoming more inclusive, the importance of diversifying tech - for both small and large companies, and what you can do to jumpstart the conversation in your own business. Attendees will leave this session with actionable takeaways that can be immediately implemented into their own diversity strategies, and will have the opportunity to ask our panelists questions.

Detroit’s tech scene is booming but at times lacks in equal opportunities for people of color. We’ll have a candid conversation with some of the industry’s thought leaders to hear what they’re doing to ensure everyone has the opportunity and access to a career in tech, capital for their business, and connections to hire the right tech to grow their teams.

Speakers: Javier Evelyn (Alerje, CODE2040 Entrepreneur in Residence at Grand Circus), Trina Scott (Quicken Loans Director of Diversity and Inclusion) , Marlin Williams (Diversity and Inclusion Entrepreneur in Residence at Tech Town), Jamie Tomasello (DUO Security, Trust and Compliance Department Manager)
