Wisconsin Tech Month is right around the corner. To prepare, we’ve invited two leaders in the tech community, Nadiyah Johnson and Ben Jaurez, to discuss their efforts to bring diversity into the tech industry.

Our conversation focuses on the lack of diversity in the tech industry and how to bring funding, access, and resources to those that are underrepresented. We also discuss Milwaukee’s current status in the tech industry and the changes we could make as a community to make others view Milwaukee as a tech hub. So for those looking to get into tech, find ways to move Wisconsin forward, and bring more inclusivity into the tech industry, this episode is for you.
