Reclaiming our Space: Exploring the Contributions of People of Color in Technology Past and Present

Kimberly Bryant, Founder + CEO, Black Girls CODE

Have you ever heard of James West? How about Mark Dean? Probably not. Without James your phone wouldn’t have its microphone. Mark helped to develop the IBM PC, and holds one third of IBM’s original patents. When we talk about the development of technology, it’s rare that we discuss the past contributions from minorities or explore what it means for organizations such as Black Girls Code and other advocates who seek to create a more inclusive innovation space.

In this brand new talk, Kimberly Bryant, Founder and CEO of Black Girls CODE, traces the history of how minorities have shaped our technological culture and the importance of amplifying their innovations of the future.

A New Approach to Automation and Identity Management

George Kwon, Senior Director of Product Management, Okta
Mohan Ramaswamy, Senior Manager, Digital Services Group, T-Mobile

Automation has always been a core part of a mature IAM program. It is an incredibly powerful tool that can deliver great end user experiences, secure access, and even manage compliance risk. However, over the years, hand crafted and brittle integrations and failed deployments have given automation a bad rap and analysts have even steered customers away from prioritizing automation. The Okta Workflows platform changes the game by delivering low code automation to the Identity industry. For the first time, Identity teams can get all the benefits of automation, without all the downsides. In this session, George Kwon, Senior Director of Product Management at Okta, and Mohan Ramaswamy, Senior Manager, Digital Services Group at T-Mobile, walk through the role of automation in Identity Management past and present, and how Okta Workflows can transform your teams in some unexpected ways.
