Inclusion is Better for Business — in the Tech Sector and Beyond

Inclusion is Better for Business — in the Tech Sector and Beyond

Technology is a powerful tool with the potential to unlock opportunities and connections for people of all backgrounds. But like most systems, the modern technology sector was built around the biases of its foundational leaders, who were mostly from dominant majority groups. Those biases too often persist to this day, limiting the vast potential of technology to create a more just and inclusive world. 

In this series sponsored by BMC Software, we’ll take a closer look at some of the foundational biases in the tech sector — from racial and gender bias in algorithms, to the way neurodiverse people experience things differently online  — and explore solutions to break them down. (Image credit: jovannig/Adobe Stock)
