Who Belongs in Tech?

A great many people work in Tech, but which of us feel that we belong? We attempt to answer this important question in our webinar Who Belongs in Tech?, organized in celebration of World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development on 2023! In this webinar, we present the results of a groundbreaking research on the theme "Belonging in Tech" and enjoy reflections on the results by our high-level guests.

Sense of belonging is an important factor as we face an ever deepening shortage of skilled professionals in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Improving the sense of belonging in technology can help attract more students, help the retention of students and workforce and provide other benefits. Join our webinar to get a deeper understanding of the problem and possible solutions!
