Tech companies control almost every facet of our daily lives, from how we communicate to the ways in which we travel and even how we buy our groceries. Products intended for use across all demographics benefit when broader demographics are represented– teams with a broader range of people have a wider range of interests, experiences, and backgrounds to draw upon. They understand potential users of products better than less diverse teams.

Join us for a provocative diversity discussion at Akamai Technologies on Thursday, June 28 featuring Armando Gonzalez, Vice-President of Product Experience and Design. We’ll explore the benefits of diverse product teams while also discussing how we can better support a diverse talent pipeline:

  • Focusing on what makes you a unique job candidate and translating your experiences into tangible, business-specific skills
  • Utilizing initiatives, professional networks, diversity partners, and other resources
  • Fostering positive workplaces and systems of accountability that recruit and retain diverse talent
  • Weighing the value of diversity of backgrounds and life experiences vs diversity of thought

There is a business case for diversity: companies who proactively build and consistently foster a diverse workforce often financially outperform their peers while creating more innovative products and satisfying their customers.
