Here at SeamlessGov, we believe government is beautiful. Inherent in that belief is the idea that diversity is also beautiful. Diversity in the tech industry is essential in establishing the level of creativity and collaboration necessary to generate ideas and solutions that are as diverse as the population we serve. As a company, SeamlessGov aims to champion diversity internally, as well as externally in the tech community.
