The tech sector is under increasing pressure to prove its benefits to all of society and reflect the needs of society at large, rather than the most privilledged. How can we ensure that both sectors include everyone and advantages are shared?

A requested event topic by members and a growing concern featured in public debate, this event provides an opportunity to share best practice in the tech for good movement and achieving inclusiveness in UK tech and media.
