Inclusion at the Workplace: You are more than an Awesome Coder

Presented by: Beam Dental (Sponsor)
Time: Thursday, Jan. 09, 2:15 PM - 3:00 PM

(Presented by Alejandro Vélez-Calderón)
Ever wonder what inclusion really means? If you are an average American worker you will spend about ninety thousand hours of your life at work. If you can't be yourself while at work, that means you are spending about one third of your life repressing your true self.

This soul clogging has repercussions for your company as well. Non-inclusive workplaces have consistently demonstrated decreased creativity, lower innovation, worse decision making, and increased employee turnover.

In this talk, we will be exploring inclusion in computer programming careers, how it has affected our past and how it can shape our future.
