DLL Storify of Code/Interactive Diversity In Tech Awards -- Thursday 2/25/16

Last update: Thursday 2/25/16 @ 10:45 pm
Code/Interactive organized this special night at the Bowery Hotel in New York City, a capstone event of Social Media Week 2016. It brought together leaders from tech, government, non-profit, and education for the biggest celebration of its kind. 

Honors were bestowed on organizations and individuals who championed diversity in tech, including a posthumous honor for Hank Williams, a courageous visionary who organized Platform 2013, 2014, and 2015, the first national conferences that addressed this important issue.
