Twitter critics spurred SF accelerator Acceleprise to commit to adding a person of color to its Friday future-of-work panel, along with a promise to do that for all future events

Acceleprise, a software startup accelerator headquartered in San Francisco, announced that it was organizing a future-of-work panel this week featuring an all-star list of panelists including Zoom CEO Eric Yuan.  The firm’s announcement quickly attracted some critics on Twitter, who pointed out that no black founders, tech executives, or venture capitalists made the list of panelists.  Acceleprise responded by committing to organizing more diverse panels in the future, and upon further prodding, added that it would be hunting to add a new panelist for their event Friday.  Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.
