Beyond the Buzzword: The Economic Impact of Diversity

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

2:30pm—4:00pm

Join us for a galvanizing talk by Code2040 Founder and CEO Laura Weidman Powers on the urgency and impact of diversity and inclusion. As an industry exploring ways to implement diversity initiatives, tech is just scratching the surface. We probably all agree that diversity is worth striving for in the abstract, but what does the practical application of diversity initiatives look like for a CEO of a 5-person startup, a small business owner, an employee of an evolving company, or a socially conscious solopreneur–and why does it matter? Join us in an important and nuanced conversation about where we are with diversity in tech and innovation, and where we want to go.

What’s your why?

I’m working on building the life I want to live. I choose the clients and partners I want to work with. I decide how much sleep I need, and how to get it. I set up shop wherever it makes sense for me, and wherever I’ll be most productive. I decide when to turn off, and when to turn on. I don’t want a life of spending an arbitrary number of hours in an arbitrary 10×10’ space. I want a life that includes me having ample time to stay healthy and happy, to be with the people I love, and to work on things that matter to me personally.

What’s your next big thing?

Partnering with the Twin Cities Geekettes and Gr8Ladies on Hack the Gap was my last ‘big thing’ and now that that is mostly wrapped up, I’m off looking for my next big adventure.
