Session

DEI Is Rooted in Justice. Let's Stop Making It About Profit.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion start with you. We can no longer ignore the inequality that others face in a world that we all live in. Nor can we expect a few people within our organizations to create lasting change when we don’t dedicate ourselves to doing the work too.

DEI. You’ve seen the letters, but do you know what it all really means? Let’s explore the depths of diversity.

We’ll understand equity on a deeper level, why it’s so important and how to spot when it is lacking. I’ll also equip you with some tools on how to foster inclusion within your organization.


SPEAKER

Chanita Simms

Deeply dedicated to DEI in tech as a matter of justice

To her family, she's the "cool" aunt. To her Mom, she’s still the baby with these big dreams. To her friends, she’s a loving world traveler and mediocre salsa dancer. But to her community, she’s a voice that will not be silenced. Chanita, founder of Melanin.Tech, is committed to accelerating the growth of the Black tech ecosystem by helping members obtain opportunities in the industry and sustain long-term, rewarding careers. Her mission is to create lasting change in the tech industry that she knows and loves. Chanita is focused on inspiring others to stand up for what they believe in and help create opportunities for as many people as possible.
