TXT hosts tech talks in South LA

Submitted by Aonya McCruiston on Thursday May 11, 2017

We recently partnered with Techqueria to host over 30 Latino tech professionals at the Cube. Focused on civic technology and tech for good, attendees learned how tech leaders are using technology to address social problems like racial disparities and the housing crisis. For links to the presentations from Chris Cuellar of ColorCoded.LA and Juan Vasquez from the City of Los Angeles, click here.

Latinos currently make up just 3% of the tech workforce at top tech companies. We are excited to continue building a strong tech ecosystem in South LA with Latinos and African-Americans at the forefront.

TXT will continue hosting tech talks as part of our effort to continue sparking innovation here in South LA. Click here to check out our next tech talk featuring DroneBase.
