BmoreOpen: Let’s get real about diversity and inclusion in tech

"Tech’s diversity problem is well-documented, but strategies for creating a more inclusive team are less widely available.

That’s what BmoreOpen is aiming to address. The event, which is being held during Baltimore Innovation Week 2016, features seven speakers talking about diversity in tech and entrepreneurship from the perspective of gender, age, race and motherhood.

The free afternoon event is set to run from 3-5:30 p.m. at the University of Baltimore’s John and Frances Angelos Law Center (1401 N. Charles St.) on Sept. 27.

Spearheaded by Yet Analytics cofounder Margaret Roth and ETC Assistant Director Jacqueline Albright, the event arose out of conversations at a Technical.ly Baltimore stakeholder’s meeting in June. Jolie Savelle Kumin ofPixilated Photo Booth, Allie Tscheulin and this reporter were also involved in organizing."
