In the high-tech industry, innovation often outweighs diversity. IT teams should be representative of the entire company, yet research points to evidence of ageism and a significant gender gap. Interop Las Vegas will celebrate diversity efforts within the tech community and face its inhibitors head-on. From a unique panel discussion on the myth of the talent gap, to special sessions highlighting the importance of women in IT, Interop's conference speakers include a range of seasoned IT leaders and diversity advocates.
Does your IT department look like the rest of your company? We're not talking about fashion choices. These days, with IT executives often viewed by their business colleagues as inhibitors to speed and success, and with shadow IT becoming in increasingly common in the enterprise, your own colleagues want to see faces in IT that reflect their own.
Interop Las Vegas, produced by UBM Tech, today features programming in that will bring the importance of team diversity within the IT industry to the forefront. As the only independent IT industry event, Interop provides insight in to the future of technology, the outlook for the IT industry, and the possibilities of what it means to be in IT. Interop Las Vegas will take place April 27-May 1 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. For more information and to register, visit: http://www.interop.com/lasvegas.
