Industry Event: Making Our Strong Community, Stronger

Join us for a diversity, inclusion and equity webinar inspired by a question to mainframe leaders: “What are you doing about it?” We’ll discuss current efforts, what’s next and why accelerating inclusion is a priority. The panelists believe their company roles provide powerful opportunities to take meaningful action—acknowledging that current complex problems and emerging paradigm shifts require new solutions. We hope you’ll be part of the conversation about how leaders are investing in the future and how allies at every corporate level are needed to create more inclusive tech environments.

CEOs and General Managers are investing in diversity; why? And how can we know more about what companies are doing? As companies in the mainframe and other industries prioritize diversity, inclusion & equity programs, allocate resources and approve initiatives, we believe our results will be collectively better and faster if we work together—and talk openly about challenges, hopes, elephants in the room—and being humble that we “don’t know what we don’t know.”

What questions do you have for industry executives? We’ll organize our discussion around questions you send us in advance (If you’d like to.) when registering for the webinar.
