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: - [INSERT SESSION HERE] - [INSERT SESSION HERE] - [INSERT SESSION HERE] I'm especially excited to hear from these speakers: - [INSERT SPEAKER HERE] - [INSERT SPEAKER HERE] - [INSERT SPEAKER HERE] Attendance is free for all attendees, and I'm confident I'll be able to get a lot of benefit from attending.
