Internet2 Gender Diversity Community Group

Time 10/06/15 06:00PM-07:30PM

Room Room 12

Session Abstract

The Internet2 Gender Diversity Initiative was developed to provide support for women in the field of information technology and the Internet2 community. In addition to creating the GDI Scholarship Program to encourage women to attend Internet2’s conferences, Internet2 and its member institutions have a special collaborative partnership with the Society of Women Engineers called The SWE@Internet2 Community. Increasing diversity in our workplaces and our community can help drive innovation and the development of well rounded and fresh ideas.

This gathering is for anyone—female or male—who is responsible for contributing to the success of their organization or anyone interested in the topics of gender diversity, unconscious bias and hiring. Please join us for light refreshments, networking and a panel focused on unconscious bias and to learn how to work together to increase diversity in our field.
