Please join us for Intel’s D&I Technology Summit for Law Students! At Intel, we believe the technology industry should reflect the diversity we see every day in the world around us. This webinar, offered in cooperation with our law firm partners, is designed to change our industry and change the world by encouraging diverse law students of all backgrounds to pursue careers in the technology sector.

Inspired by the overwhelming success of last year’s program, the Intel D&I Tech Summit will feature new speakers, new topics, and new ideas to bring you fresh perspectives on a career in Tech Law & Policy. The program will begin with introductions and a Welcome Presentation by Intel, before breaking into smaller breakout sessions.

The breakout sessions will be divided into two, 30-minute rounds to provide you with the opportunity to explore different areas. In these sessions you will have a chance to hear from our distinguished panelists, who will introduce themselves and their practice areas, and then take your questions. We hope you’ll join us for insightful conversations regarding practice areas including:
