Bringing LGBT+ History Month to The Guardian

February is LGBT+ History Month and this year for the first time the Guardian held a series of internal events to celebrate this. This talk covers how this came about, what we did, and why this was an important thing to do.

Seyi Newell

Seyi Newell - Founder of TRiBE

Why I Hate the Word 'Diversity'

After a career in fashion and charity PR, London born Seyi decided to create TRiBE out of necessity; she was tired of consistently being the only black woman in the number of places that she worked. With TRiBE, she aims to make black women more visible not only in the work environment but everywhere.

About the event

We will host a variety of talks on diversity, inclusion and breaking of stereotypes and biases. We hope to hold open and frank discussions and debates on what can be done to increase diversity in the technology industry.

The evening will start off with food (with vegetarian and vegan options) and refreshments (wine/beer/soft drinks/etc). Talks will start at 7:00pm. After the talks please do stick around to chat and meet others who care about improving diversity.

Please read and adhere to our code of conduct.
