Latinx Heritage Month Talk for Athenahealth

Partnered with Josh Torres to deliver an engaging talk during Latinx Heritage Month for Athenahealth, a healthcare IT company.

I was invited to discuss the advantages of inclusivity for Latinx employees in the software industry and share my experiences as a successful female Latinx engineer.

I wanted to share the space with my friend, Josh Torres, who is an excellent speaker and could share his own unique insights.

It was 1-hour virtual event with ~100 attendees.
