Monitorama - Our Most Wicked Problem

Portland, OR
05/05/2014 to 05/07/2014

 “Wicked Problems are difficult or impossible to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements that are often difficult to recognize. The term ‘wicked’ is used to denote resistance to resolution, rather than evil.”

The increasingly homogenous landscape of tech is becoming a more difficult problem to solve each year as more people enter. We no longer recognize symptoms as they’ve become normalized. In this talk, we’ll discuss why the lack of diversity in tech is Wicked Problem and what we’re trying to do about it.
