Testing as a Path to Social Impact
This year, PLATO Testing is a Gold Level Sponsor for the STARCANADA 2017 conference. This is a great opportunity for the company and it provides a chance to spread the message about PLATO and its mission to another audience. Keith has told the PLATO birth story many times over the past few years but the one thing about it that never gets old or tiresome is the driving passion that started the program in the first place. How can the tech industry step-up and make a meaningful change for Indigenous people? How can reconciliation become more than just lip-service and become part of the day-to-day way of doing business in the Canadian tech community? Talking about the core concept of “Work = Dignity” and how his company has made a change since its inception, Keith will demonstrate through example how software testing can be a path to social impact. After more than two years down this path, he has some very real stories of individual impact to share with the audience.
