With GitHub Universe one month away we are excited to announce our 2017 Community Partners!

We choose Community Partners based on several criteria but the three main questions we ask ourselves when reaching out to potential organizations are:

Does their work assist in lowering barriers for people from underrepresented backgrounds to enter and succeed in the tech industry? Do they have an audience that can benefit from complimentary tickets to the conference? Are they making a positive social impact, namely in the geographic region where the conference will take place? GitHubโ€™s push towards a more diverse, inclusive and accessible Universe is rooted in the fact that bringing together people from disparate backgrounds fosters innovation within our industry. If weโ€™re not working to actively engage people from all walks of life, weโ€™re doing our community a disservice. The more we can bring diverse communities together, the more enriching, educational and valuable an experience we can provide for everyone.

โ„น๏ธAbout 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.
