Madison is home to a burgeoning tech scene, but not one that reflects the broader population of the community. So what to do about the tech sector's diversity problem?
Last week, the Capital Times and 100state organized a discussion about what it's like for people of color in the local tech sector, and what institutions and individuals can do to make the scene an inclusive one.
The panelists included:
Rasheid Atlas, YWeb Career Academy instructor
Nhi Le, director of gBeta Madison at gener8tor
- Christina Outlay, Department of Information Technology professor at UW-Whitewater and founder of colorcoded
Dante Viscarra, CEO of Fu2ra
Cap Times education reporter Amber Walker moderated the talk.
