Black in Tech presented by Oracle NetSuite
We’re dedicated to increasing diversity in the tech community and making our coworking space an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and identities.
Check out our 2019 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Report, which reflects on our work the past few years, what we’re doing currently, and how we want to continue improving in the future. Read more about it here. If you have any feedback or comments, we’d love to hear from you!
This event will be IN-PERSON at Capital Factory in Austin!
