About this event

What does Progress in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) look like in the Caribbean Tech Space?

What did it take to get us this far? And how much further do we have to go?


OUR THEME: #PROGRESSNOTPERFECTION

This year #IWDTechSummit2022 will celebrate and explore the theme #ProgressNotPerfection, and what progress means in our Caribbean context in the STREAM space.

We are connecting INTENTION with SUSTAINABILITY & ACTION as we connect our participants with critical industry best practices, knowledge sharing, Core DEI Training and some of the region’s boldest and most innovative projects & companies.

We aim to foster an ecosystem of Caribbean empowerment and action that will contribute to greater representation of a diverse and inclusive Caribbean.  We will examine not only the experiences and challenges of our current landscape, but deep dive into the imagination, tools and systems needed to foster the growth of the Caribbean footprint and experience in the global network of technology.

This year #IWDTechSummit2022 will celebrate and explore the theme #ProgressNotPerfection, and what progress means in our Caribbean context in the STREAM space.
