ustwoTALKIES & People of Creativity host: A Black History Month Celebration
Join us for the first Black History Month Celebration co-hosted by People of Creativity.
We'll be stepping away from the typical diversity-in-tech conversation, instead taking a moment to highlight and celebrate the accomplishments of those dominating their respective fields.
On the evening we'll have inspirational speakers, a thought-provoking Q&A session and delicious afro-carribean food & drinks.
