Workshop: Achieving Inclusion with Policy & Advocacy

One avenue to address the diversity discrepancy within the tech community is through policy reform. Navigating government process to influence change can be overwhelming. However, governing bodies at the local, state and federal levels can have an enormous impact — and with the right tools, WE have the power to influence them.

In this workshop, we’ll break down the areas of government that can contribute to diversifying workforce and founder populations. We’ll discuss ways to activate government officials then break out in groups to brainstorm concrete policy solutions to the tech inclusion challenge.

Whether you’re an experienced activist, a political skeptic or you have no idea where California’s state capitol is, join us to learn how to leverage the forces of policy and get things done in the halls of political power.
