2021 Keynote Speakers

Hear “Lending Privilege” by Anjuan Simmons, our 2021 U of I Web Conference Closing Keynote Speaker

Diversity and inclusion have become hot topics in technology, but how can you make a difference? This talk will help you understand, no matter your background, that you have privilege and can lend it to underrepresented groups in tech. Learn the various types of privilege lending, including credibility lending, access lending, and expertise lending. We’ll also look at well-known examples of privilege lending and explore how they can be applied to the technology industry.
