Diversity in InfoGov

Just back from the excellent Information Governance Conference last week and was struck not only by the high-quality of the program but the diversity of the audience:

  • Women and men, in relatively even numbers
  • African-Americans, Asians, Caucasians, Latinos … a true melting pot
  • Records, Legal, Compliance, IT, Line-of-Business executives … a cross-section of organizational life

Not sure which of these is most noteworthy in a technology arena, but I am proud of the event’s inclusivity. Let this serve as a beacon to others, in this and so many other ways!
