The tech sector entered 2023 facing new questions about its capacity to deliver both business growth and positive social impact. Months of headlines about share price volatility and headcount reductions have many commentators questioning if tech is entering a period of retrenchment. Less frequently discussed is what the near future of tech might mean for the most historically disenfranchised workers.

At a time when data suggests companies are quietly divesting from commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion, what must be done for the tech sector to provide an inclusive, empowering space for workers of color? Join us for a discussion with leading voices from business, journalism, and activism.
