  • This event has passed.

March 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Join the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for a virtual symposium on March 16, 2022 that will highlight the findings and recommendations of the committee authored consensus study report Transforming Trajectories for Women of Color in Tech. This report uses current research, as well as information obtained through four public information-gathering workshops, to provide recommendations to a broad set of stakeholders within the tech ecosystem for increasing recruitment, retention, and advancement of women of color. The report identifies gaps in existing research that obscure the nature of challenges faced by women of color in tech, addresses systemic issues that negatively affect outcomes for women of color in tech, and provides guidance for transforming existing systems and implementing evidence-based policies and practices to increase the success of women of color in tech.

The symposium will also serve as an opportunity for key stakeholders to come together to identify opportunities for collective action. Please contact Ashley Bear at abear@nas.edu to attend a private session focused on exploring the development of an Action Collaborative guided by the information put forth in this report
