Latinas in Tech has released their latest LiT Report. This research was conducted between November 2019 and February 2020 amongst members and participants of Latinas in Tech events.

Thanks to these the learnings, we are able to curate meetups and webinar topics that are of most interest to our audience. Through their answers, we are also able to detect problems that prevent our members from growing and gives us the information we need to develop training and workshop curriculums.

The information of our members is our top priority, therefore we only share the aggregated data through this report and we do not share individual information.

This information is shared with Tech companies so that they are aware of the areas that we need to work on.
