No matter the measure, whether it be race, class, or gender, the tech industry does not reflect the American work horse. Most industry leaders, including Google and Facebook, see the lack of diversity as a problem, and one of the most common diagnoses is what is called “the pipeline.” The idea is that there aren’t enough qualified candidates from underrepresented groups to hire because they aren’t being prepared for careers in tech.

ℹ️About Techqueria

Techqueria is a 501c3 nonprofit that empowers Latinx professionals with the resources and support that they need to thrive and become leaders in the tech industry.

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