Event Types πŸ”—οΈŽ

Networking πŸ”—οΈŽ

Our most informal type of event are just Techqueria members gathering together to network and hang out casually. Examples include happy hours, board game nights, etc.

Our panel events allow participants to discuss their work, prepare for critical milestones in their career, establish goals and accountability through peer mentorship, and explore how to navigate our workplaces as underrepresented members of the tech industry.

There are usually 3 to 4 panelists with 1 moderator.

Comida πŸ”—οΈŽ

Outside our regular workshops and meetups, we often meet up and network at food gathering events that we call comidas.

This is an opportunity to share our rich, diverse cultures through food and fun!

Anyone in our community can organize a comida and a company can also sponsor one for up to 25 people.

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.
