Event description

Description

Working in tech doesn’t mean you need to know how to code or have a STEM degree. Learn how you can translate your current skills into the role you want. Join us for our quarterly Pride in Tech mixer event at the beautiful Flexport office located on the 25th floor of the iconic Bank of America Plaza (600 Peachtree St NE in Midtown) on Thursday, July 18, 2019, starting at 6 PM.

Flexport created a collaborative environment where individuals with all sorts of backgrounds get to work for a thriving tech company and their employees want to share their success stories to help you move forward with your career.

We will kick off the event with Open Networking featuring co-host Flatiron School. You will meet MAAP members and guests, Flatiron School, and Flexport employees as they discuss how they are helping the LGBT community get into the technology space.

Remarks will be presented by the Flexport team where they’ll present how they combined tech, expertise, and a personal touch to disrupt the logistics industry. They'll also dive into the open roles in their rapidly growing Atlanta office!

We will then have a breakout session where you can connect with the Flexport team to ask any questions about their open roles and culture focused on diversity and inclusion.

It will be a night to remember, RSVP now! You don’t want to miss this special event. Please remember your State ID as you will need to present it for entry to the building.
