Diversity in the Technology Sector is a subject most choose to discuss without offering solutions. This is not the case with an organization called Brooklyn. With a tag line of “A Better Brooklyn through technology”, Brooklyn, a news organization and community builder covers technology issues in Philadelphia, Baltimore and now Brooklyn, the newest location recently launched summer of 2013.

On January 28, 2014, Brooklyn is hosting an afternoon Tech conference focused on increasing the inclusion of underrepresented groups in technology fields in Brooklyn and beyond. This afternoon of dialogue and exchange will help identify issues around diversity in technology and steps that can be taken to correct them.

“Inclusivity in technology and entrepreneurship is a topic of importance for a number of focuses we’ve found in our reporting,” said Christopher Wink, the cofounder and editor of local tech news site Brooklyn, which is organizing the event. “From youth and gender and racial and other underserved communities, we wanted to create an environment to share best practices across those thought leaders.”

Some of the featured speakers of this event includes:  Jennifer Lawton, Keynote Speaker (President/MakerBot Industries), William Crowder (DreamIt Ventures), Gauri Nanda (Toymail Co), Jessica Banks (RockPaperRobot), Kelsey Conophy (Workzeit), Aminatou Sow (Tech LadyMafia), Ben Esner (NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering), Stephanie Cuskley (NPower) and Kristina Harris Petersen (Math Warriors).
