The Diverse Voices professional speaker series, hosted by the Baskin School of Engineering, aims to expose students to strong role models from industry and provide an opportunity for students to interact with industry professionals in an academic setting. Each event includes a reception, an interview-style presentation moderated by a current or recent Baskin Engineering student, followed by ample time for the audience to ask questions and for the speaker to engage with the audience about their goals and aspirations. Although geared towards students and recent alumni, the talks are open to the public, and anyone interested in diversity in tech are welcome!

On May 8, Laura Gómez joins us as the final speaker in the series. Gómez is the CEO and Founder of Atipica, a technology company that has built the world's first inclusive AI platform for the talent life cycle. Laura is also a founding member of Project Include, a non-profit whose mission is to give everyone a fair chance to succeed in tech. Gómez attended UC Berkeley for her undergraduate degree, and UC San Diego for her MA.
