While the primary mission of Latinas In Tech is to connect, support, and empower Latina women in the tech industry, we recognize that our allies play a crucial role in fostering an inclusive and diverse community and therefore we’re shining a spotlight on 4 Latinos to celebrate & appreciate your contributions (and collaboration) towards amplifying Latina voices.
During this discussion, the panel will dive into the future of tech in terms of diversity & inclusion, advice for allies and how to be more effective, building a supportive community and much more!
