🌮About Techqueria

Techqueria is a nonprofit that serves the largest community of Latinx in Tech.

We build Latinx-centered spaces that revolve around career advice, technical talks, mentorship, open jobs, networking events, speaking opportunities, and open-source.

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.

Ultimately, our vision is to become the largest network of Latinx in Tech across the country.

Interested in becoming a sponsor?

Feel free to set up a partnership call and we can talk more about the different ways you can support the largest community of Latinx in Tech.
