What was fascinating was to hear the stories from all of the participants on their path to where they are now and how they are making a difference in their community through technology. There were very candid discussions about race, gender, sexual orientation, people with disabilities and class and the lack of equity, diversity and inclusion in the tech industry from all of these groups. The amount of sharing and learning that weekend left participants motivate, inspired and energetic to continue the work they’re doing as well as collaborating more with organizations in attendance.

Thank you to the organizers, the sponsors, and attendees. Keep inspiring us all through your work!
