What we're about

Despite Latinos' affinity for consuming technology, only 7 percent of the STEM workforce is Latino. We want to do our part to change that. Formed in 2014 as the first Latino tech network in Chicago, Latin@ Techies creates community-based events to expose young Latinos to STEM, connect Latino tech professionals, and leverage tech to tackle critical community issues. Past events have included the first Latin@ Hackathon in Chicago, the first series of bilingual pop-up tech fairs in Chicago, and several networking opportunities, including a panel with the Hispanic Googlers Network (HOLA).
