Engineering Empathy: Fostering An Inclusive Culture at Our Code School

The most successful products are built by engaged and creative teams that are able to integrate a diverse set of voices throughout the development process. Through my work at Dev Bootcamp, I’ve come to realize that empathy, a driver of meaningful connection, is the key component in creating an inclusive, open and collaborative culture. And as it turns out, empathy, just like coding, is something you can learn! In this talk I’ll give you some insight into how I teach it to our staff and students, and in the future, the tech community at large.
