Putting a price tag on the work of #techdiversity

  • The tech industry is extremely homogenous.
  • There is an entire movement that exists to help make the tech industry more inclusive for underrepresented groups, with the goal of making the industry more diverse.
  • Research has repeatedly shown that in the knowledge economy, diverse teams are more creative, innovative, and generate real financial value.
  • An extremely large proportion of the people who are doing the hard work of making tech more diverse come from minority or underrepresented backgrounds themselves.
  • Most of the people who spend their time (and often money) to create a diverse tech industry are volunteers.
