As Reported via Blacks In Technology:
“Diversity issues in technology are nothing new and given the recent diversity reports released by tech giants Google, Facebook and Twitter we all know that there is a lot of work that needs to be done.
Take a look at the average technology conference speaker list and you’ll see much of the same and even worse when it comes to people of color. Take an even closer look at the attendees of tech conferences and….well you get the point.
So what do we do? How can we increase diversity at tech cons?
Join us this Thursday, August 14th 9pm EST/ 6pm PDT as we sit down and discuss how Bryan Smith is tackling the diversity problem at technology conferences as the founder and organizer of the Free and Open Source Software conference, FossetCon.”
