#LHM Summit was Techqueria’s first ever virtual summit that took place during Latinx Heritage Month (LHM) earlier this month from Wednesday October 7th to Friday October 9th, 2020.

It was created to empower Latinx professionals in tech, connect them with companies who are committed to inclusion and to celebrate the thriving Latinx in tech community.

Final Stats

Our mission for #LHM was to increase the visibility and leadership of Latinx professionals in tech by bringing them all together in one place to engage with thought leaders, network and ultimately grow and learn from each other.

We feel the event met our mission goals and exceeded all our expectations!
