Diversity IT Network

Diversity IT Network is a community of multicultural Information Technology professionals that serve as a resource to one another for personal growth and career development. Our events combine networking along with interactive workshops and presentations delivered by seasoned IT executives and designed specifically to advance careers within Information Technology.

Why was Diversity IT Network created?   To fill several voids:

  1. We provide a safe environment where IT professionals of all backgrounds can discuss barriers to career advancement within the IT industry and how to overcome them.
  2. We create an educational platform where a technologist’ analytical thinking is complimented with the soft skills necessary to climb the corporate ladder.
  3. Created by IT for IT. Yes, soft skills are universal, yet each career path has its own nuances. The personality traits of someone in IT are different than someone in Marketing. We understand that and ensure our workshops reflect what makes you, the technology professional, unique.
  4. We need Diversity in IT, including more women and multicultural individuals.

Launched in 2014, Diversity IT Network is the brainchild of Reinier Moquete, CEO of Advoqt Technology Group, an IT consulting firm based in Cambridge MA.  With over 14 years of industry experience, Reinier has serviced the IT needs of the most recognized brands in New England. Reinier moved to Boston in 1999 with no family, no education, and no money.  After six years of full-time schooling, all while maintaining a 60+ hour workweek, he earned an A.A. and A.S. (Business & Finance, respectively), both from Bunker Hill Community College, as well as a B.S. in Telecommunications from Pace University.  Making it out of a tough situation and turning his life around, made him want to help others do the same, so Reinier co-founded Latino STEM Alliance, a 503(c)3 non-profit designed to inspire underserved youth to pursue careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).  Reinier also serves in a number of other committees/boards and always makes time to meet with rising professionals and provide guidance on how to excel in the technology industry. “Lift as you Climb!“
