The second day of the festival (October 9th) is the Latinas in Tech Summit, the largest gathering of its kind comes back to drive the conversation and showcase success stories from engineering to leadership. This year, over 500 women and allies will be able to connect, learn and dialogue with top tech companies. Inclusion with Purpose will be at the center of the conversation.
We will hear from the best speakers in the entire tech ecosystem, with sessions covering everything from the Intersectionality in Tech, Rising Stars in Engineering, $1 Million Latino Founders Club, we will learn from Employee Resource Group Leaders and we will hear from Sarahi Espinoza founder and CEO of DREAMers Roadmap and Forbes 30 under 30, Ana Sofia Sanchez, General Manager of Waze Mexico, named as part of the 100 most influential women according to the same publication in Mexico. We will get to hear from the voices of women pursuing their dream in Technology while battling their immigration status, and we will dialogue with companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter about Contingent Workers.
This year’s Summit will conclude with a “LiT Recruit Fiesta” that will allow companies and candidates to meet and mingle while creating introductions that can later open the doors for attractive opportunities to all attendees while bringing the much needed diverse representation to Tech companies. Latinas and allies will have the opportunity to meet recruiters from companies like Comcast, Airbnb, Google, Indeed, Asana, Dropbox, Prezi, and many others. Take a look at the full agenda and speaker lineup here. This Summit was made possible thanks to the continued support from our presenting sponsor Comcast, our Platinum Sponsors Indeed Google and Airbnb and many more tech companies and organizations that want to make a difference in Diversity and Inclusion in Tech.
