SILICON VALLEY INNOVATION CENTER
We help global corporations grow by empowering them with new technologies, top experts and best startups
Diversity and inclusion have been hot topics in Silicon Valley for a while now. Studies have shown that diversified teams outperform homogeneous ones, bring in more revenue, and are demanded by millennials in the workforce. So far, progress on this front has been slow, as it’s difficult to know what actionable steps to take without insights. However, the use of artificial intelligence can enable hiring processes free of human error and bias, as well as pathways to achieving diversity across the tech industry. Join us for a discussion about building the future of diversity and inclusion through AI and data science.
