This December, the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) will take a deep dive into how inclusion is driving innovation.

“Innovation in Georgia technology is not possible without inclusive decisions that create positive, lasting change,” said Larry Williams, president and CEO of TAG.

TAG will tackle the topic at its annual conference Converge on Dec. 1 at the Atlanta Buckhead Marriott hotel.

“Converge 2022 is a highly-anticipated event for Georgia professionals to gain a better understanding of the technology industry trends we see today to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce for tomorrow,” said Williams.

The theme of the conference is Transform, Advance, Grow, and will include more than 40 speakers with panel discussions focused around the conference themes.
