Video – Technology, Education, and Advocacy Panel

On February 27 we hosted a panel of esteemed guests, moderated by Takara Small (technology reporter and podcast host), to discuss and explore how education and advocacy can support the Black diaspora, the importance of integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion into the organization framework and supporting Black entrepreneurs and tech professionals.

Watch the video and hear from panelists Dr. Karl Reid (Senior Vice Provost and Chief Inclusion Officer, Northeastern University), Hilda Firempong (Wellness Specialist, Northeastern Toronto), and Kareen Onyeaju (DEI and People Operations Leader).
