We recognize that many people in our community and in the sector at large are passionate about creating change, and we want to ensure they are able to take action wherever they are.
Our Programs Team has developed high-impact experiences that inspire and mobilize Black and Latinx technologists and their allies. This includes one-off events, online and offline experiences, and of course The Summit, Code2040’s annual conference in San Francisco.
Code2040 is experimenting with a newly designed event series that creates intimate spaces for insightful, casual dialogue among community members on topics pertaining to diversity, equity and inclusion in the innovation economy. Imagine a dining table with ten brilliant, passionate, curious individuals from a variety of tech, racial, gender backgrounds coming together over candlelight, comida, conversation to dream, laugh, disagree respectfully and be intrigued about the most pressing issues facing our industry.
Created in 2018, Code2040’s new PopUp Series will pilot an outgrowth of the organization’s successful student-focused programs like the Fellows Program, and events like the Summit, with a series of stand-alone workshops and panels designed to engage a broader community of participants, particularly rising Black and Latinx tech professionals. These PopUps will be hosted by trusted, mission-aligned company partners, scaling Code2040’s ability to create unique spaces for Black and Latinx experiences across the industry.
