We’re not seeing a diversity of perspectives, and that gives us a world where everything that we’re using has that sameness to it. It doesn’t represent the users." Anna Lindow, our VP of Partnerships, along with Tom Ogletree, our Director of Social Impact, spoke about the lack of diverse staff in the tech sector at the Fast Company Innovation Festival: http://ga.co/2fZ5lVl 
The ed-tech organization is taking aim at hiring practices and working to eliminate unconscious bias.
