Just 1 in 14 tech employees in Silicon Valley is African American or Latino yet the number of young urban americans who want to start a business has never been higher. The question must be asked: are African/Latino Americans unknowingly segregating themselves from the technology conversation?
A panel of experienced professionals in software, media, entrepreneurship, education, and youth development will discuss key solutions to increase the representation and influence of Blacks and Latinos in technology throughout the pipeline...without segregating them from the larger conversation. Breaking out of your ethnic comfort zone, dismantling ideas about democratization, playing in a rigged game, and identifying patterns from successful minorities in STEM fields will be a taste of themes covered. The panel will be moderated by Andre Briggs, a software developer at Microsoft who has an interest the future implications of demographic and technology related convergence.
