What Traveling a Million Miles has Taught Me About Diversity and Inclusion

Traveling over one million miles to technology events in almost 100 countries and all seven continents has allowed me to experience, observe and learn a great deal about diversity. Join me as I share experiences, lessons learned, and a few great photos collaborating with technology communities around the world. In this session learn how you can get involved with global groups, technology events and social projects with a mission to foster and grow diversity and inclusion in science and technology.

My extensive travel experience has afforded me an opportunity experience technology cultures in unique places like Comoros, the only known matriarchal society on the planet. I want to inspire others by sharing a unique global perspective on diversity and inclusion.
