Hi [INSERT YOUR MANAGER'S NAME HERE],

I would like to request time off to attend a few sessions that are of interest to me at Techqueria's #LHM Summit 2020 from October 7th to 9th.

Techqueria is a 501c3 nonprofit that serves the largest community of Latinx professionals in the tech industry within the US.

Their #LHM Summit is an event during Latinx Heritage Month (LHM) created to empower Latinx professionals in tech, connect them with companies who are committed to inclusion and to celebrate the thriving Latinx in tech community.

As an attendee, I will have the opportunity to network 1:1 in meaningful dialogue with other Latinx in tech professionals, hear from Latinx leaders in tech and engage with the largest Latinx in tech community in the country.

This event will allow me to tune into various sessions that appeal to me throughout the day including interactive panels, workshops, keynote speakers and significant networking opportunities.

You can find the full agenda on their website: https://techqueria.org/summit.

The sessions I'd like to attend are:

Let me know what you think!

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.
