The Next Wave of Tech Talent

2020 is all about preparing The Next Wave of Tech Talent, and we’re excited to announce a brand new Tech Inclusion event that will do just that.

Join us in San Francisco on April 28th for the next Tech Inclusion Summit: Women in Engineering! This is an event for anyone who identifies as a woman, nonbinary, and/or gender non-conforming to receive professional and technical skill development, learn from leaders and colleagues, and network – all while discussing the unique issues facing the women working in today’s tech industry. We’re partnering with Blend to convene women engineers from all backgrounds, experience levels, and specializations for panel discussions, interactive workshops, and more.

Tech Inclusion events are a safe and innovative space for people across every gender, race, ethnicity, religion, country of origin, sexual orientation, visible and invisible disability, and age, as well as veterans and people who have been incarcerated. Our Code of Conduct is vital to creating this safe space and all participants at our event have a role in making sure it is upheld and enforced.

We work hard to make our events accessible to everyone – the venue is wheelchair accessible; we’ll have all-gender/all-people restrooms; we’ll have seats up front reserved for wheelchairs, people who are deaf, hard of hearing and/or visually impaired; we’ll have live captioning at the stage and ASL interpreters onsite.

If you need an ASL interpreter, volunteer guide, Mother’s Room, prayer room or have other accessibility needs we’ll do our best – please let us know when you RSVP!
