You’re invited to an in-depth discussion with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and executives from top local tech companies as you look at how tech companies can shed “unconscious biases” and look to diverse districts to expand their business and recruit new talent.
Then, join for a panel discussion featuring leaders from Yelp, Lever, Techqueria, and TechEquity Collaborative to discuss the process and challenges of building an inclusive employee base.
Networking, drinks, and appetizers will follow with representatives from local tech companies 99designs, Snagajob, Saildrone, and VSCO.

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.
