Presented by the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Council at Drexel University’s College of Computing and Informatics (CCI), the Office of Alumni Relations, and the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation.

The conversation will be hosted by CCI Associate Professor Michelle Rogers, PhD, who is a leader at Drexel on issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion with a particular focus on women in technology. Joining Dr. Rogers is alumna Quincy Brown, PhD computer science ’09, who is a senior policy advisor in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).
