Why Diversity Matters to Tech Innovation, with Dr. Wendy DuBow

 

Drawing on social science research, national statistics, and real-life examples, Dr. DuBow’s presentation explains why that soap dispenser in the airport may not work for your hands but seems to work for everyone else’s. Dr. DuBow also will discuss the underrepresentation of women in technology fields, the influence diversity can have on both innovation and the bottom line, and examples of common technologies whose shortcomings demonstrate why it’s critical to have a diverse team at all stages of technology development.
