KPMG Diversity Tech Summit & Top 100 Asian Stars in UK Tech
KPMG Diversity Tech Summit and Top 100 Asian Stars in Tech
Wayra UK, Diversity UK and KPMG are working together to host the first Diversity Tech Summit aimed at the start-up ecosystem on Monday 13th June 2016, followed by an evening reception to launch the Top 100 Asian Stars in UK Tech 2016. This event will take place one week before the second London Technology Week.
In 2015, during London Technology Week, Wayra UK launched startupDNA, the first research study to reveal the social makeup of Britain’s start-up ecosystem. The Diversity Tech Summit is designed to bring together key individuals to pursue a diversity agenda and meet the challenges outlined in the startupDNA executive summary.
According to a Wayra study, 79% of individuals agree that diversity helps startup teams succeed. However, this is in sharp contrast to the statistics and experiences that we keep seeing and hearing about when it comes to diversity in the Tech industry (or better the lack thereof!).
For that reason we will hold our inaugural Diversity Summit in June together with Wayra and Diversity UK. A great line-up will be discussing how to pursue the diversity agenda in your business, the challenges that people are seeing and ways to overcome those.
The Summit will be followed by the launch the Top 100 Asians Stars in Tech in 2016.
Join us at these events to pledge for diversity!
