Diverse backgrounds drive diverse outlooks drive forward-thinking innovations. This is the belief of Tech Diversity Magazine, backed by study after study illustrating the positive correlation between diversity and business performance. Recognizing this, the tech industry as a whole has worked to instill a greater diversity in its ranks. Many have gone further, designating dedicated professionals to lead the effort towards closing the demographic gaps that only serve to slow progress down. The National Diversity Council seeks to honor these professionals tirelessly doing that important and necessary work.
