Empowering women in the tech industry
Hanish Patel is joined by Google’s Julia Silva and Deloitte’s Sharon Harris to take a closer look at the need for diversity in the tech industry and the benefits of an inclusive culture—for every employee.
You have to have representation, you have to be respectful, you have to be relevant. That’s the real business impact of having a diverse and inclusive culture.
Implementing a positive change
Hanish continues his conversation with Julia Silva and Sharon Harris, discussing what it means to bring your “authentic self” to work, the importance of having sponsors—not just mentors—and the value in bringing diverse perspectives to the table.
In bringing your authentic self to work, you have to be mindful of other people, because you’re not doing this in isolation. But you should be comfortable in your own skin to share, to experience other people, and be open to having those conversations.
