Black in Tech Summit
Capital Factory welcomes you to our 2nd Annual Black In Tech Summit! 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.
Attendees can look forward to a Keynote address from a community leader, insightful fireside chats, discussion sessions, educational workshops, and panels on relevant topics facing the tech ecosystem.
We recently published 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. If you have any feedback or comments, we’d love to hear from you!
**IMPORTANT NOTE: This event will be entirely virtual and live-streamed for attendees.
