9,000 technology jobs are coming to Austin by 2017. Yet, less than 17% of these jobs are filled by women, with women of color making up less than 1%. For 15 years, Latinitas has empowered over 25,000 young Latinas and other girls using media and technology through digital media production, game design, coding, and robotics, and we are now dedicating our seasonal Chica Conference to design thinking.
Latinitas’ Design Chica Conference is open for any and all girls between the ages of 9-18.
Latinitas will show girls of all backgrounds how to design a great user experience for technological applications, such as 3D printing. The day will also include some demonstrations of virtual reality. During lunch, girls will meet with women in UX design, graphic design and various roles in the tech sector.
