In Shama Hyder's article, she highlights that the tech world is severely lagging in diversity and inclusion initiatives, with racial minorities still very much ranking as less than twenty percent of employees at major companies such as Google and Microsoft. She also makes mention to companies such as Deloitte, which are attempting to create a diverse, inclusive, and sustainable workplace. A very interesting article to read!
