What difference would it really make?

I got to find out for myself at the Tech Inclusion Melbourne Conference organised by Change Catalyst few weeks ago- thanks to complimentary tickets from Launch Vic.

1. Diversity is not just about women in tech

For bizarre reasons, diversity always reminded me about putting more women in tech and lobbying for equal pay and opportunity. This impression probably stems from marketing campaign that seeks to right the wrongs that women in the past faced. Therefore that forms a renewed charge towards getting more women in tech and giving equal opportunity.

Are we falling back on our very own bias?
