Event description

Description


The University of Illinois at Chicago - Culture Shock Organization & Partners | Dell Technologies | Alliance 98

Presents: I AM FIRST Sponsored by DELL

#Diversityintech

"Evidence strongly suggests that a racially diverse tech sector could translate into stronger financial performance...Case in point: Black people and Latinos earn nearly 18 percent of computer science degrees, but hold barely 5 percent of tech jobs." -Michael Connor, Wired.

This year I AM FIRST will gather Chicagoland first-generation students, entrepreneurs, nonprofit & corporate professionals in various fields. Special Guest Panelist will share their personal stories of how they are contributing to the Tech Field and creating more opportunities for young people, particularly for first-generation students.

Students can enjoy up to $150 Off Student Exclusives + 10% Off full priced items when you shop with Dell online at Dell.
