About this event

Generous Futures: Driving Change for Good is a series of virtual discussions exploring the triumphs and struggles of leaders as they address societal problems. Drawing on the voices of non-profit and charity leaders, corporate sector champions, community advocates and influencers, Generous Futures aims to shed light on topics of national and global significance.

Why does the world of tech have a diversity problem? How can we address this issue in a coordinated and meaningful way?
