Austin is a town of contradiction and transition. The juxtaposition of a fiercely liberal town set on a conservative backdrop creates the friction that much of the town's creative fire sparks from, and much of its charm. The Silicon Hills are a secret no more--in Austin, growth and change is a constant.
The Capitol City sets itself apart from other startup hubs with a diversity of culture that mitigates groupthink and "me too" ventures. But how does the Austin Tech Community fare in its physical diversity makeup among women and under-represented minorities? Does it matter?
This panel will bring together Austin-based female and under-represented minority business executives, to discuss and debate the impact of diversity in the development of the Austin Technology community.
