Debugging Diversity

A session at RubyConf Australia 2016

Thursday 11th February, 2016

1:35pm to 1:55pm (EST)

Most of us who work in the tech space know that it is painfully lacking in diversity. But why is it the case? After all, the early pioneers of computer science were largely women and yet now only 6% of tech leaders are female. In Australia, the number of Aboriginal developers barely blips past 0%.

Debugging Diversity performs a root cause analysis on diversity in tech and explains how it can be fixed. How each and everyone of us plays a role. Come and hear how over 2 years of research has culminated in a provocative, yet inspiring presentation.
