Virtual – Black Excellence in Tech | Your Future Matters | Panel

February 22, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Your Future Matters! Join Flatiron School and our Tech Perspective podcast host – Jelani Thomas for a special pane event in honor of Black History Month. This event will feature successful Black professionals in tech, all from diverse industries, backgrounds and experiences.

With Black Tech professionals making up only 7% of the high tech sector it’s time to hear real life stories from tech professionals who helped bridge the gap and built sustainable careers in an industry where they are underrepresented.
