Welcome to Latinas in Tech in Chicago

We are thrilled to welcome Chicago as the first Midwest Latinas in Tech chapter!

The Chicago area is headquarters for 36 companies on the Fortune 500's list of top companies, with 11 based inside the city of Chicago. Chicago is also home to various tech startups; and every year more and more make Chicago their home, including Facebook, Google, Uber, Microsoft, and Twitter.

We invite you to join us at our events and be involved in these important discussions while we also celebrate each other's accomplishments, careers, goals, and the future of Latina women in the tech workforce across the nation and world.

We’re excited to bring together the Latinas of the tech industry in the Windy City by:

  • Developing networking opportunities and building relationships with one another
  • Increasing awareness of the Latinas in tech in Chicago and their impact to the community
  • Celebrate and acknowledge each other’s accomplishments, challenges, and successes
  • Inspire and mentor future Latinas interested in the tech industry

Please join the Latinas in Tech Chicago facebook group to keep in touch with community events and opportunities.
