Diverse by Design will host its fourth convening on October 25th, 2017 from 1pm to 3:30pm at Google’s Global Headquarters in Mountain View California. This conversation will examine diversity through an entrepreneurial lens, asking the tough question—how can technology leadership, on the cutting edge of social, cultural and technological change, innovate to support the building blocks for new hiring and retention systems across the country?

A networking reception will follow the event from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. Seating for this event is limited.

ITSMF 4th Quarter 2017 Symposium

Register for #ITSMFQ4

For the first time ever, our 4th Quarter Symposium is open to all ITSMF constituents as we forge new partnerships, reinforce existing ones and build strategic alliances to cultivate leaders for an evolving digital world.

This event will focus on the mind, body and soul of the leader, and explore the “true grit” and resiliency that drives innovation and business growth.

We invite you to join the conversation, share your journey, and experience a Symposium unlike the others, as we reflect, refocus and renew our commitment to diversifying the pipeline with the next generation of technology leaders.

NOTE: The Q4 Symposium will be more casual in attire (business/resort casual) and in the experience (less formal with minimal onsite event support).
