Leeds has a thriving digital health ecosystem – it is home to 160 med-tech and health informatics companies; it has the largest concentration of health informaticians in the UK; it has 22% of all digital health jobs in the UK in our city.
But how diverse is that ecosystem and what can be done to make it inclusive for everyone?
Diversity in tech is regularly in the headlines, and for good reason. Gender and race bias have been shown to predominate in data driven algorithms. There is a case that diverse teams have more chance of spotting and correcting bias in data driven digital products and services.
mHabitat is holding an event during Digital Leaders Week for anyone who is interested in contributing to making Leeds the best for a diverse and thriving digital health ecosystem.
