About this event

For a long while, conversations on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) were sidelined as a matter to be discussed mostly by those in Human Resources - it is clear that times have changed, and this can no longer hold true.

With conversations and outrage about social justice filling our digital feeds daily, awareness about DEI has never been higher across all demographics. The remarkable interest and advocacy for incalculable causes in both local and global communities have contributed to the increase in DEI-related conversations.

How do we respectfully recognize all the ways in which we differ, and ensure that a variety of people have power, a voice and decision-making authority?

What can we do better to help provide fairer treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people regardless of their identity?

Lalitha Wemel of Techstars joins us as we explore how the Asia Pacific startup scene has been supporting these very conversations.

About Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Month

This month Startup Grind is celebrating DEI month, presented with SVB and supported by Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs. DEI stands for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; 31 days to emphasize the importance of diversity across our global startup ecosystem, and what it means to all of us. We are so excited to take this time to recognize and amplify the voices of leaders in our globally diverse communities, providing a platform for those that may not have been heard previously.

In addition to this event, you can also view Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Month events taking place across our global startup community here or register for our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit here.
