Technology Needs Latinas: Bold Decision Makers

Monday, March 16
5:00PM - 6:00PM

In late May 2014, Google released its diversity report. As expected, the numbers were not good. Google’s technical workforce, worldwide, is 30 percent women. In the United States, the numbers are two percent Black and three percent Hispanic.

Being successful in technology requires challenging courses like computer science or technical design. Very few women try these male dominated degrees, and even fewer of those women are Latinas

Latinas are bold because they are decision makers, fascinated for what they do. They are entrepreneurs because they fight for their dreams and goals. Tech Latinas are those who make what they say, they're committed to contribute to make a big impact, they are inclusive, they inspire others to inspire, they know that working together and recognizing the work of others goes further. Tech latinas never betrays their ideals no matter what people say, they are confident of what they want, who never stay in the comfort zone and their mission in life is to transcend.
