In light of recent political events, Techqueria and PyLadies are committed to ensuring that underrepresented groups in tech feel included, valued, and safe.

Our lives are enriched when everyone is heard and gets to thrive and, more than ever, we need to work together to make sure this remains a priority in the work we all do. This event is a discussion about we can do to support each other. Let’s share resources and knowledge and brainstorm for a movement for inclusion in tech and beyond. All are welcome.

For this event, we plan to have break into groups to plan for skill-sharing and event planning for now and the future.

Please fill out this form (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1sodh8_s2r0P8GY9hbMMkJW9sYA5VdxVQfi53QlgC62Y/edit) so we have a sense of what topics to focus on.

🌮About Techqueria

Techqueria is a nonprofit that empowers Latinx professionals in the tech industry by building networking and career advancement opportunities.

We build Latinx-centered spaces that revolve around career advice, technical talks, mentorship, open jobs, networking events, speaking opportunities, and open-source and we work with both employee resource groups (ERGs) and tech companies to comprehensively affect change in the tech industry.

Coming from all walks of life, we believe that the diversity of our community is the most reliable asset we have. Our space aims to be inclusive so we invite Latinx from the regions of the Caribbean, Haiti, and Brazil as well as those who identify as Afro-Latinx, Asian-Latinx or LGBTQIA. The term Latinx is used instead of Latino or Latina because it is a gender-neutral and inclusive term.
