The Code2040 Summit

The movement for racial equity in the innovation economy advances through community-driven support, advocacy and empowerment. We believe that we all succeed when people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives have a seat at the table and we believe intentional efforts must be made to bridge the gap of opportunity and access for underrepresented communities.

Join us on July 28th and 29th for the annual Code2040 Summit and embrace this year's theme, Community Rising. Code2040 creates pathways for Black and Latinx communities to access and thrive as tech professionals and innovators. Our growing community is critical in the advancement of our mission and in creating systemic changes across the industry that will facilitate a new generation of diverse talent and leadership.

Day One

Friday, July 28th, 9am - 5pm
@ The Village, 969 Market Street, San Francisco, CA

Programming will focus on the value of building inclusive companies and communities early on and the type of leadership that gets it done. How can you start the conversation about diversity at your company? How can companies incorporate values early on to foster a more inclusive workforce? How can Black and Latinx entrepreneurs thrive and play a role in building a community that reflects the makeup of our country? These are the questions we aim to address!
