How can we engage diverse talent in the high-growth climate tech sector and lead the way toward environmental justice and equitable, sustainable solutions for the next generation?

Explore these questions and more on March 10–11 at the 2022 Diversity in Tech Symposium: Advancing Climate Resilience, hosted by the EDGE in Tech Initiative at UC, CITRIS and the Banatao Institute, and Berkeley Engineering.

Now in its sixth year, the annual Diversity in Tech Symposium (formerly Women in Tech) will highlight the experiences of experts working to advance innovation in clean energy, water conservation, food systems, disaster prediction, sustainable manufacturing and many other areas within their organizations.

Join in a virtual event devoted to world-changing technologies, featuring a climate tech fireside chat with E. Natasha Stavros of the University of Colorado Boulder and Tsu-Jae King Liu of Berkeley Engineering, a keynote talk by Margot Brown of Environmental Justice & Equity Initiatives at the Environmental Defense Fund, featured panels, deep-dive breakout sessions with tech companies, a career fair, and more.

The symposium will also feature the presentation of the 2022 Women in Tech Initiative Athena Awards, recognizing leaders and organizations that have championed the advancement of women and people of color in technology.

The symposium is open to the public, allowing a broader audience to join the conversation and reimagine an equitable and resilient future for all. Participants from startups, nonprofit and government organizations, and established companies as well as students, staff and faculty from the University of California and beyond are all welcome.
