Software Sesh | The Future of Diversity & Inclusion in Tech

I was a guest speaker at a Software Sesh virtual event discussing the job search for inclusive companies and the future of Diversity & Inclusion in tech.

Slack  Software Engineer & Techqueria Board Member & Executive Director Frances Coronel and Outco Learning & Development Program Manager & Career Coach  Cristina Costa discuss the job search for inclusive companies and the future of Diversity & Inclusion in tech.
