Diversity Week 2024
→ Feb. 5-9th
Diversity Week is a full week where we'll zoom in on - you guessed it - diversity. This year, we're unfolding the diversity term to go beyond gender. As we and partners host events and meetups, we hope to go deep into the many facetted, complex, and important aspects of diversity.
We'll kickstart a conversation about the challenges and the solutions - both the solutions, we can implement in our daily lives and the structural changes, we all can and should push for.
We invite underrepresented founders, community members, and allies, wanting to learn how we can create a more inclusive startup community.
The events will drop sporadicly, so stay tuned!
