PopUp: Getting Ahead

Introducing Code2040 PopUps! This new event series will provide more opportunities for our community to come together for the advancement of Black/Latinx brilliance in tech.

There’s no shortage of career-focused events in the Bay Area, nor is there a shortage of events focused on discussing diversity. But there are few events that focus on the unique challenges that Black and Latinx techies face while navigating their careers. Unconscious bias and structural racism create invisible barriers, unique hoops, and often unforeseen ceilings for Black and Latinx professionals. Thankfully, those who came before us have experienced these challenges, faced uncertainty in their careers, and climbed the ladder.

The theme of the inaugural Code2040 PopUp is “Getting Ahead.” Join us for stories and strategies about keeping skills up to date, deciding when to leave or join a company, taking financial risks and planning for financial uncertainty, developing sponsorship and strategic self-advocacy, and more.

How do you negotiate a raise or a promotion? How do you assess your skills and create a support system that helps you grow? When is it time to pivot to a new career, new company, or to start something of your own? We’ll discuss these topics and more at Code2040’s first ever PopUp!

Food & drinks will be provided.

This is a FREE event. RSVP to save your spot!
