The WIT Diversity talks interviews senior male colleagues around their experiences and thoughts on gender diversity and gender balance, and why this has been important to them both professionally and personally.

The purpose is to raise awareness and provide role models on how one as a (male) ally can participate in progressing the issue.

The WIT Diversity Talks are a complement to the WIT Talks, as the former somehow turn the tables with regards to the latter: in the WIT Talks, women are interviewed around their careers, acting as role models in that sense. With the WIT Diversity Talks, the focus would be to talk about personal experiences on diversity and provide male role models to show that this is also a question for men. Normally interviews like this are the other way around, men about career and women about diversity!
