Become a Speaker

If you are interested in supporting Techqueria as an individual, one great way to help out is by becoming a speaker for our events.

As a speaker, you receive the opportunity to… 🔗︎

  • improve your brand as we will be marketing your profile on our different social media platforms
  • improve your public speaking skills with practice in front of large audiences (we typically get around ~250 people at our larger events)
  • make new connections by letting the audience ask you questions after the talk
  • receive swag or money for your efforts and time as a small token of our appreciation

We do provide speakers a 50 dollar reimbursement through Open Collective for certain events.

As a speaker you commit to… 🔗︎

  • joining the appropriate event channel on Techqueria’s Slack and responding when needed
  • preparing in advance
  • syncing with the event coordinators before your talk
  • arriving to the event on time

We prioritize speakers who identify as Latinx in Tech.

We welcome speakers with all levels of experience! It is not a requirement to be an experienced speaker for our events. Ultimately, we are just looking for passionate people willing to speak in front of large audiences.

ℹ️About Techqueria

Techqueria is a nonprofit that empowers Latinx professionals in the tech industry by building networking and career advancement opportunities.

We build Latinx-centered spaces that revolve around career advice, technical talks, mentorship, open jobs, networking events, speaking opportunities, and open-source and we work with both employee resource groups (ERGs) and tech companies 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.
