My talk starts focused on the mis-comprehension that diversity in tech is about women, but ends talking about how diversity is anything that broadens perspective and conversation.

The office hours should be more of the same. It is a scant amount of time to talk about the subjects, and is focused on solutions.

i would like to know what is meant specifically by “diversity”. i came across this last year and my impression of what most folks were discussing about “diversity” had more to do with women and lgbt colleagues, as opposed to the longer overlooked aspect of racial diversity. is this more of the same?
