The fifth and final webinar, Diversity and Inclusion In Deep Tech, will be held on Friday, April 30 at 12 pm Eastern and will feature leaders who are working to make the deep tech ecosystem more inclusive and diverse.
Overview – Deep tech commercialization requires significant human and capital resources. Whether it’s within a startup, a large corporation or anything in between, this deep tech to market process requires a strong and committed team of people with different expertise and experience. In addition, it has been well documented that tech ecosystems often lack diversity and participation from a truly inclusive mix of people from a wide range of backgrounds. There is also empirical data that shows more diverse teams are more productive and more profitable for their organizations. As a result, it seems that there is an opportunity for all members of the deep tech ecosystem to identify ways to improve and emphasize diversity and inclusion in their various roles. Doing so would likely enable them to better serve deep tech entrepreneurs and startups and position them for success. The fifth part of the Deep Dive Into Deep Tech Incubation webinar series will explore the diversity and inclusion gap in deep tech innovation and discuss approaches that organizations are using across the country to instill diverse and inclusive ecosystems where they operate.
