Is Diversity a Luxury Item in Technology?
<p>In the U.S., a country literally "built for white men," (Khadijah White, Rutgers) imperialism and colonialism cast a long shadow on the economic drivers of business and technology. Influenced by experiences of micro-discrimination at MIT Media Lab and my response in working on its Diversity Committee, I've started a long-term project to explore the imperialist shadow on U.S. startups and to consider if diversity is considered an inessential luxury in the tech economy.</p>
