As a female founder of a mainframe software company, VirtualZ Computing Founder and CEO Jeanne Glass has always been dedicated increasing diversity within the tech sector. Through this mission, she brought several mainframe ecosystem partners together including Broadcom Mainframe Software, IBM, Rocket Software, TechChannel and Open Mainframe Project to accelerate diversity, equity, and inclusion across the technology industry.

To date, the Making Our Strong Community, Stronger collaborative initiative has coordinated three events, all of which were produced and moderated by Dr. Gloria Chance, the CEO of the Mousai Group. These events have put a spotlight on DEI from an executive perspective as well as personal experiences and how they shape corporate inclusion or the ability to bring your “whole self” is a privilege—and plays out differently for different people.

In this session, the four executives from the original kickoff webinar (Jeanne Glass of VirtualZ Computing; David Jeffries of IBM; Greg Lotko of Broadcom; Andy Youniss of Rocket Software) and Dr. Chance will come together to discuss the larger goals associated with the initiative, why it’s important and what’s to come.
