CTO School Meetup Thu, Sep 12 - Jason Wong on Bootstrapping Inclusion - RSVP Now!

From: Jean B.
Sent on: Tuesday, September 10, 2019 12:16 PM
Hello,

We are meeting this Thursday at 6:30pm.  RSVP here, we still have a few spots left (note new location at 90 5th Ave).   This month we have a great speaker talking about an important topic.  

Topic:  Bootstrapping Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion are hot topics right now. But, year after year, our industry fails to move the numbers significantly. It seems everyone is talking about it, but how do you actually bring about change?

In this presentation, I’ll share the concrete actions from my efforts to bring inclusive practices into an engineering organization. From conceptualization to communication and implementation, you’ll hear about what worked and where I struggled. You’ll walk away with real world tactics—going beyond unconscious bias training and rooney rules—that you can use to start building your own inclusive workplaces.

Speaker: - Jason Wong https://jwongworks.com,  Twitter https://twitter.com/attackgecko

Jason Wong is a proven engineering leader, diversity & inclusion consultant, and doughnut enthusiast.

With almost two decades of experience in building and scaling web applications, he has worked in a range of industries from academia to online media and e-commerce. He helped establish web development and administrative computing at Columbia College, led development of premium video streaming services at Yahoo! Sports, and spent seven years at Etsy leading their Infrastructure Engineering team. He currently works with engineering leaders to improve their engineering management practices and establish inclusive cultures.


Looking forward to seeing you.  Once again, RSVP here.
