The Race & Pedagogy Institute and African American Studies program at the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, invite the public to a free event with Maxine Williams.
For four years, Maxine Williams, global director of diversity for Facebook, has worked developing strategies to attract and support underrepresented people at the social media giant, which reaches a global community of more than 2 billion people.
Together with her team, Williams aims to increase the cognitive diversity—different ways of thinking based on people having different backgrounds, experiences, and information— across Facebook.
“A Conversation on Diversity and the Tech Industry,” will be held at 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 13, in Wheelock Student Center’s Rasmussen Rotunda.
The Rhodes Scholar, lawyer, broadcast journalist, and Facebook director will give a talk and take questions from the audience.
Directions and a map of the campus can be found here.
