What can we do within the tech community in Europe to encourage diversity and inclusion in our businesses? This question is more relevant than ever and there is a lot of work and efforts that can be done. In June we hosted a webinar focusing on this topic – and now it’s time for a follow up discussion.
To dig deeper into the topic of diversity and inclusion, we invite you to an expert panel live from Epicenter Stockholm with our favourite host Ellen Bjerkehag. Don’t miss this interview with Alexandra Pascalidou, Suzan Hourieh Lindberg, Barakat Ghebrehawariat and Roger Dupé where we’ll focus on solutions and hands on measures you as a company can do to ensure you actively work with diversity and inclusion.
