Technology is everywhere in the twenty-first century, and the industry behind these ever-evolving marvels needs to create products that appeal to all different backgrounds, races, cultures, genders, and abilities. Ideally, the creators should reflect this same diversity as well, making for more creative and forward-thinking technologies. In this revealing volume, readers will address issues such as the how and why of retaining minorities in the technological workplace and the inclusion of neurodiverse employees. Inspirational figures are featured throughout, giving readers motivation and hope for a more diverse future in technology.
