Celebrating Black in Tech | Honoring Black History Month
About This Event Series
While the tech industry has grown exponentially over the past several decades, Black workers remain disproportionately underrepresented at both leading tech companies and the venture capital firms investing in tech startups. Join General Assembly for the second annual Celebrating Black In Technology series. Throughout the month, you’ll hear from Black leaders across the globe within different industries, sharing their expertise, personal stories, and best practices as leaders in their fields. Additionally, we will dive into how all of us can work together across education, hiring and investing to create an equitable tech ecosystem.
