The 2017 Latinas in Tech Silicon Valley Summit will address an important question:
How can companies thrive by focusing on diversity & inclusion?
The inaugural Latinas in Tech Silicon Valley Summit will take place on Thursday, September 28 at Covo in San Francisco during Hispanic Heritage Month, with the goal of engaging and leading the discussion about diversity and inclusion in tech.
The Latinas in Tech Silicon Valley Summit will highlight women working in the tech sector for a day of empowerment, engagement, and education. The Summit will offer inspiring keynotes, engaging panel discussions and numerous networking opportunities to connect with other participants.
To kick off the Summit, we will be hosting an Opening Cocktail Reception courtesy of Zendesk at their gorgeous offices in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 27. This event is free and open to everyone. You can register for the Reception here.
The Summit then starts the next day on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 9:00am with an exciting keynote address by Carla Piñeyro Sublett, CMO of Rackspace, followed by numerous interactive panel discussions featuring Latinas (and allies!) that are leaders throughout the entire tech ecosystem, including corporate business leaders, venture capitalists and angel investors, entrepreneurs, engineers, AR/VR creators, human resource leaders and diversity leaders. All panels will be moderated by Silicon Valley journalists. We will also feature a fireside chat with Elena Gomez, CFO of Zendesk.
In addition, the Summit will close with a dynamic panel featuring diversity and inclusion leaders from Asana, Indeed, Pinterest and Uber, who will engage in an open discussion about what the tech industry is doing to attract, retain and empower more women working in tech.
