Description

Last year the Latino Institute for Corporate Inclusion (LICI) in partnership with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), as well as several national Latino organizations, hosted the first Latino Tech Summit in Santa Clara, CA. This year we are proud to announce its return from October 27 - 28 at Santa Clara University.

The Latino Tech Summit (LTS) is designed to increase, retain, and elevate Latinos in the tech sector. During the summit’s plenaries, industry experts will discuss the importance of diversity and inclusion, share best practices for creating a more equitable tech workforce, and foster the next generation of tech executives.

This year, LTS is offering three circuits designed to enhance the individual’s skill-set and expertise based on their career-level.

  • Entry Level: Whether you are fresh out of college or only been in the field a few years, our entry level circuit will give you the skills you need to succeed. Workshops will address topics such as strengthening soft skills, resume and cover letter building, shared resources to stand out and excel in your field.
  • Mid-Level: Got a few years under your belt? Professionals with over 5 years working in the tech industry are encouraged to join our Mid-Level circuit to learn how to prepare for management positions and next steps to strengthen your career.
  • Senior Level: Join the Senior Level circuit for robust conversations with other seasoned professionals to discuss employee resource groups (ERGs), community and relationship building, and issues Latinos in the tech sector face. Senior Level sessions will be presented as forums where presenters and attendees will collaborate and strategize to bridge the diversity gap.
  • Community-Based Organizations (CBO's) Insight: Wondering what role CBO’s play in the tech sector? Sessions with this indicator will highlight how CBO’s and companies work hand in hand to help create a larger impact. CBO insights will be hosted throughout the summit

LTS will offer various networking opportunities for all circuits to meet and mingle via the summit’s Opening Social, expo, and cafecito breaks!
