Technology has fearsome power to make life better, or worse. Designing it is too important to be left to people whose perspectives draw on only a narrow spectrum of human experience. To make tech work well for all, it needs to be made by all kinds of people.This session will tackle the challenge of diversifying the tech world, with a special focus on fintech. Finance is male- and white-dominated. So is technology. As the two have converged into fintech, a young industry that could have been born diverse has, instead, inherited the race and gender patterns of its forebears. What are the high-impact strategies for infusing new blood -- new kinds of founders, funders, visionaries, and builders? It is time to bring new kinds of brains and hands into crafting the future.#diversifyingtech
