DiversityDiversity and inclusion in the technology industry are subjects that are close to the heart of Showpad’s engineering team. We value fostering a diverse and inclusive technology industry because it is the right thing to do. If that isn’t a strong enough argument, then having a diverse team and diverse representatives have proven again and again to create better products, foster a better work environment and, if you need the business case, to improve the bottom line.At Gears we are committed to making our events more diverse and inclusive.
