SAE invites our web lecturer Dominic Patmore to host a panel event with tech professionals on how we take down racism in tech.
About this Event
SAE Institute with one of our web lecturers, Dominic Patmore, will be hosting a panel event around racism in the tech world.
We hope through this conversation to:
- Help students of colour identify the challenges of working in tech, and consider strategies to help them thrive;
- Help the majority take conscious steps to address systemic inequality when they enter tech spaces
- Help educators facilitate this process in the classroom; to create their own "brown eyes, blue eyes" experience.
