Allyship in Tech - Unlocking the Power of Diversity

We are pleased to invite you to 'Allyship in Tech' on Thursday March 28th 6-9pm, our flagship event within Dogpatch Labs' Diversity In Tech Week.

This will be a participatory, carefully curated roundtable event where you will come away with the practical tools on how to foster an inclusive workplace - whether you're an early-stage startup or a scaling team.

We’ll be covering the topics our community really want to learn about including:


We’re keen to make this event far more than simply discussion about the theory of inclusion, but rather an interactive workshop focusing on the practicalities of fostering an inclusive workplace.

The evening has been designed to provide an opportunity for real dialogue in a safe setting, focusing in particular on facilitated conversation between attendees, including startup founders & culture leads, tech ecosystem leaders, corporate executives and change activists.
