The recent CNN special Black in America, the New Promised Land: Silicon Valley brings the question of diversity in entrepreneurship and high-tech start-ups to the forefront and asks questions about how we can systemically improve diversity in tech start-ups. Our question is, How can we systemically improve diversity in higher education IT across all staff levels, from entry level to key leadership?
