Are social and economic conditions ripe for meaningful change in institutions and employer practices and policies? What stands in the way of us leveraging this moment? We’ll discuss what it will take to disrupt occupational segregation and get more Black learners and workers into digital and IT jobs and careers, and the role of digital and tech in closing the Black-white wealth gap.
