Fortune Brainstorm Tech Tackles Diversity

Short up top today, since I’m in Aspen helping the team prepare for Fortune Brainstorm Techwhich gets underway at 2pm Mountain Time.

I can already report that diversity and inclusion are top of mind for most of the attendees I’ve spoken with, inspired by the torrent of difficult news coming out of the tech sector, the current national rhetoric around race and immigration, and a growing understanding that diversity is both a business and moral imperative.
