Inclusive Tech is a community-driven consulting organization dedicated to the advancement of women, non-binary and underrepresented people in technology. Our community is a platform for allies and underrepresented people in technology to empower, inspire and educate each other.
We make the topic of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Tech visible with our events and provide empowerment: Underrepresented groups can share their knowledge, their stories and experiences with our thriving community as experts, leaders, and minorities in technology, science, product and engineering.

Inclusive Tech consults SPIEGEL Ed and the Schwarzkopf Foundation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence with a strong focus on Algorithm Fairness.

The fight for gender equality in tech has been a long struggle. The U.S. has carried out several studies covering the underrepresentation of women in the tech industry, but no such research exists in Germany. All of this becomes even more complex when you throw in cultural and ethnic diversity. This is why we are currently conducting the very first study on the Diversity Gap in Data Professions in Europe.
Judith Gerlach is the Bavarian State Minister for Digital Affairs in Germany and requested us as an organization to consult her staff on the topic of Data Analytics Upskilling and Diversity in Tech.

In the SPIEGEL article “Overlooked by the Algorithm”, our founder Mina Saidze is the main protagonist where the social and societal implications of technology are thoroughly analyzed.
