The tipping point of tech to hide behind the “pipeline issue” is over with social justice from Frances Coronel, Technology Director of Techqueria.
How do you build a Latinx Tech bay area meet-up group into a global organization of 15,000 Latinx/a/o BIPOC/LGBTQ members in 3 years?
Techqueria was born from the need to have safe conversations in tech, safe networking, and leadership discussions that would hold technology companies accountable for their DEI policies and recruitment transparency.
The tipping point of tech to hide behind the “pipeline issue” is over with social justice from Frances Coronel, now the Technology Director of Techqueria, and she is holding the line with a #NoTechForICE policy, along with MiJente who is bringing our voices from the community to the front lines in powerful movements of technology and politics.
Special thanks to Robert Lopez for sound engineering and co-production.
NOTE: Frances was holding the Executive Director position at the time of recording.
