Summit: The Woken Word

In recent years, there has been an alarming increase in racist and discriminatory rhetoric and violence. Black and Latinx communities are marginalized by exclusionary systems that were not designed or built with our diverse communities in mind. Meanwhile our industry---full of companies pioneering new technology and tackling some of the world’s most difficult problems---struggles with inequity within its halls. In a space where people shape the future and redefine what is possible, we see rampant injustice, limiting Black and Latinx people’s access to careers, the ability to create transformative products, and the opportunity to build wealth in the innovation economy.

The answer to this injustice lies in all of us. More than ever, Code2040’s mission for racial equity in the innovation economy requires the mobilization of a community of Black and Latinx technologists and their allies and accomplices. This is difficult, exhausting work. Whether you are a college student breaking into computer science or the head of diversity and inclusion at a major tech company, we want to empower you to find and build your voice and we want to help you make your voice heard.
