Topic: Diversity

Finding optimal solutions to problems often requires out of the box thinking. People from different backgrounds think about the world differently. Increasing the diversity of ideas statistically increases your chances of finding an optimal solution. With this in mind we often find ourselves in a homogeneous group limiting the pool of ideas available. How did we get here? What are we doing to perpetuate this? How can we solve it?

Thanks to Judd Gaddie ( for proposing this topic.

About XTC

The eXtreme Tuesday Club (XTC) is London's oldest agile meetup, and has been meeting since 1999. Initially the meetup was focused on discussing Extreme Programming (XP), but it has expanded to include anything XP, agile, lean, or the larger context in which we do software development activities.

We welcome all software development newbies, practitioners, and experts to discuss topics of interest over drinks.
