Never before has there been an event dedicated to celebrating the contributions made by Latina innovators to STEM fields and tech companies worldwide. That is, of course, until now.
This fall, The Latinas Think Big™ Innovation Summit will bring together more than 300 accomplished and aspiring Latinas in STEM careers–along with a talented group of innovators, tech entrepreneurs and influencers–and showcase their innovations.
The FREE event will take place on October 3, 2014 on Google’s Silicon Valley campus, marking the first time in tech history a Fortune 500 company has hosted an event dedicated to celebrating Latina innovation. During this history-making event, online and in-person attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to learn from, connect to and network with a group of innovators, experts, tech entrepreneurs, leaders and influencers.
In-person attendees of the dynamic all-day event will have the opportunity to participate in various think tank sessions, a Latinas Think Big™ showcase–featuring lightning talks by six Latina innovators–and refuel with a high-powered networking luncheon. The day will cap off with an evening cocktail networking reception. But, wait! That’s not all. A Latinas in STEM program for young Latinas will be running parallel to the Summit, and will include a Coding Jam session and mentoring sessions with professionals in STEM careers.
Latinas Think Big™ aims to elevate the conversation on the current state and future of Latina innovation by showcasing the innovations of Latinas tech and STEM leaders. Additionally, we will discuss best practices and disruptive models to increase the representation of Latinas across the tech sector, and connect Latina innovators to potential collaborators, supporters, mentors and investors! But most of all, our main objective is to inspire Latinas, of all ages, to pursue careers in STEM.
So spread the word and be sure to sign up for the Latinas Think Big™ Latina Innovation Summit!
