This is an ISTE Expert Webinar recording from September 12, 2018.

We all go to educational technology workshops and conferences where we begin to see the same speakers and presenters over and over again. Some are our favorites, so we don’t mind. But what’s limiting new voices from breaking into the edtech world? Join this webinar to discuss the beginning of a movement to include more diverse voices in edtech.

This webinar is presented by Desiree Alexander of the ISTE Digital Equity Network with panelists Toutoule Ntoya, Natalia LeMoyne Hernandez, Alicia Johal and Santi Khairassame.
