Latinas in Tech is a non-profit organization with the aim to connect, support, and empower Latina women working across the technology sector.
The group began in Silicon Valley in 2014 and has since then expanded to Austin, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Sacramento and Mexico City to connect and support the Latinas working and living in those cities.
Latinas in Tech covers the full tech ecosystem. We are engineers, cyber security experts, data scientists, business development leaders, public relations professionals, sales professionals, journalists, bloggers, entrepreneurs, investors, marketing professionals, recruiters and everything surrounding the tech ecosystem.
Although we do not deny the diversity and inclusion problem that we face at the moment, our focus is on the opportunities that we, as individuals can tackle in order to grow and take a seat in the decision-making table.
We work hand in hand with top technology companies to create safe spaces for learning, mentorship and recruitment.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
