4 Steps to Demonstrate Your Commitment to Diversity
The tech industry is behind on their diversity initiatives, but there are four steps they can take in 2021 to quickly and effectively make a difference.
Diversity has been the talk of tech for years now, but little progress is actually being made. In the last half-decade, Facebook’s proportion of black employees has gone from 3% to 3.8% — hardly any change at all.
On the surface, it would seem as though tech is undergoing an epidemic of good intentions. Nearly every company sets high diversity expectations, and yet little changes from quarter to quarter.
What is preventing these diversity initiatives from working? Tech cultures that are far too insular, and tech leaders unwilling to change them.
