Having grown up in the U.K., Vinay Bhagat says he faced a lot of discrimination, both personally and professionally.
“When the [race-related] events of this year occurred, it just brought up those bad memories. I have a personal responsibility, even though I’ve not personally been held back in this country, to help others… If I can help other CEOs care about the issue, and take progressive steps to make their companies more inclusive and diverse, then we’re helping,” says the founder and CEO of TrustRadius, a platform of software reviews.
To that end, the company has released the 2020 People of Color in Tech Report, which finds the face of the tech workforce is slowly changing but there is still plenty of work to do before a fully diverse and inclusive workforce is in place.
