The Why Black Leaders Matter in Technology SXSW session will focus on the roles, responsibilities and impact that takes place when you merge of the worlds of entrepreneurship, culture, diversity, leadership and innovation. Sparked from the USA Today article on “Why black leaders matter in technology” (http://bdbx.co/1wR6jnB ). The session will focus on solutions and research from successful Black leaders in various tech industries to provide an outline for all communities. The Why Black Leaders Matter session is an inclusive session for all diverse communities to discuss the role of African-Americans in tech.

The goal for the session is not only to discuss the “why” but cover the who and how can all communities support inclusion and create more leaders in today’s society.
