Developing Organizational Structure and Support that is Conducive to Advancing DEIB (including workplace policies) 

People of color and women are significantly underrepresented in leadership positions throughout the tech industry. Limited access to growth opportunities that can position them for the next level and biases held by those in decision making positions, coupled with a dearth of women and people of color to promote are a few factors that can account for this. This module helps participants understand why talent from certain populations are slow to experience upward professional mobility and provides strategies for creating systems that ensure that all talent have a fair chance at experiencing upward professional mobility.
