Techqueria is a nonprofit that serves the largest global community of Latinx professionals in tech.
Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) on March 1st 2019, Techqueria’s mission is to empower Latinx professionals with the resources and support that they need to further their careers and become leaders in the tech industry.
Techqueria has 18,000+ members and allies in their network and their online Slack community has 12,000+ members with nearly a quarter engaging on a weekly basis.

As an organization, we make it our goal to serve all tech professionals throughout their career growth by offering community to all members, from marketing professionals to engineers. We are particularly interested in elevating the voices of these professionals to leadership roles within the tech space.
We empower Latinx leaders in tech nationally through support of local chapter initiatives, as well as digital members spread across the United States. We support career mentorships, development seminars and talks, as well as opportunities for tech professionals in similar careers to meet and share ideas and leverage each other’s expertise to solve problems.
In 2020, Techqueria launched our inaugural summit in celebration of Latinx Heritage Month (LHM), to empower Latinx professionals in tech, connect them with companies who are committed to inclusion, and to celebrate the thriving Latinx in tech community.
Techqueria works with both tech companies and employee resource groups (ERGs) to build Latinx-centered spaces that revolve around career advice, recruiting, mentorship, and networking in order to comprehensively affect positive change in the tech industry.
