How Can We Increase Viewpoint Diversity in Silicon Valley?
with Garrett Johnson
Lincoln Network co-founder and executive director

Recent, high-profile examples of conservatives and libertarians being shunned or even targeted by the tech world has led some to scrutinize the lack of ideological diversity in the tech world. Many are asking whether the principles of openness, diversity, and inclusion upon which many of these online platforms were built are being tossed aside to promote political agendas.

Join PRI and the Young Leaders Circle for an evening with Lincoln Network co-founder and executive director Garrett Johnson. He will discuss the findings of a recent survey on viewpoint diversity and learn how excluding diverse views in the tech world is alienating a significant talent pool and hurting innovation.

Event Details:
Wednesday, July 11
6:30 to 8:30 PM

Wine, beer, and hors d’oeuvres will be served
