Tuesday, March 14, 2017 - 2:50pm3:45pm

Ashe Dryden, Programming Diversity


SRE as a field has grown exponentially over the past few years, yet still remains burdened by barriers to entry. What can we be doing better as a community and an industry to attract and retain talent? What obstacles do people face in attempting to participate? What we can do to increase participation? How can we foster an environment that supports, sustains, and enables people from a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and identities?
