About This Event

Join Flatiron School and friends as we celebrate Black Excellence in Tech in honor of Black History Month.

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