Register for the 'Making Our Strong Community, Stronger' Webinar

Upcoming webinar calls attention to investing in diversity, inclusion and equity

On Nov. 12, 2020, speakers from Broadcom, IBM, Rocket Software and VirtualZ Computing will come together for an online event focusing on the importance of diversity, inclusion and equity. The webinar, “Making Our Strong Community, Stronger” will be moderated by Dr. Gloria Chance, the CEO of the Mousai Group. Featured mainframe executives include Jeanne Glass of VirtualZ Computing, David Jeffries of IBM, Greg Lotko of Broadcom and Andy Youniss of Rocket Software.
 
These mainframe leaders will discuss how their companies invest in diversity, inclusion and equality, and will encourage other industry leaders to put time and energy into creating a more equitable field. Recent years have highlighted the necessity of bringing diverse points of view to the table so that the progress of the mainframe industry can reach all communities.
 
This webinar will focus on a question to all mainframe leaders about diversity: What are you doing about it? The participating industry executives will share why they believe diversity and inclusion must be a priority in order for the mainframe to move forward and can offer suggestions and ideas for mainframers to meaningfully address issues of inclusion and equity in their own companies.
 
Diversity is not just a buzzword, and it’s not enough to simply increase the number of women or people color in a company or industry. Diversity and inclusion must also be accelerated and made a priority within the mainframe in order for the community to grow, change and exist in the modern era. Through this event, companies can learn from top executives what steps they can take to ensure that they are doing everything they can to create an inclusive workplace for all communities.
 
This webinar’s panelists believe their company roles provide powerful opportunities to take meaningful action, and acknowledge that current complex problems and emerging paradigm shifts require new solutions. By attending, you can be part of the conversation about how leaders are investing in the future and how allies at every corporate level are needed to create more inclusive tech environments.
 
The virtual event, sponsored by Broadcom, IBM, IBM Systems Media, Rocket Software and VirtualZ Computing, will be held on Nov. 12, 2020, from 12:00 – 1:00 EST.
