Breaking Barriers: First-Gens in Tech

I did a Slack AMA for HubSpot’s “Breaking Barriers: First-Gens in Tech” event on November 9th.

Very grateful for the opportunity and excited to share my experience as a first-generation Latina on building my career in tech. 🙌🏽

The event promises to be a great experience for first-generation individuals interested in learning more about what it really means to work in tech. It’ll be a two-day digital experience with over 20+ sessions with tips and advice to break personal and employment barriers going into the tech industry. 💻

500+ people have registered for the event, which is the highest registration HubSpot has seen for the event series yet. 😮

RSVP and join us! 👋🏽
