In The Tech Community

BLK Men in Tech

As a Black man, it can be hard to express yourself authentically while working in the tech space.
We need this to change.

This conference will provide Black men with access and education which they can leverage to advance their tech careers without compromising on the core values that make us unique. It will also expose allies to new concepts that can be applied to create safer work environments that can accommodate the distinctive needs of Black men in this field.

Here’s Why You Should Attend The BLK Men in Tech Conference

01

Learn how to integrate yourself into an industry that lacks diversity

It’s abundantly clear that most organizations operating within the tech space were not designed with the needs of Black men in mind.

Through BLK Men in Tech, you will learn what it takes to maintain your authenticity while adapting to complex work environments.

02

Discover how to retain and engage Black men in tech roles

This conference isn’t only for Black men. We invite all tech professionals to attend. For senior leaders in attendance, we will provide you with the insights you need to keep the Black men in your workforce satisfied with their position in your company.

03

Expand your professional network

Networking is essential for success in tech. We recognize that it can be difficult to connect with other professionals who do not hold similar values, so we have positioned our conference as a real-world opportunity for Black men in tech roles to engage with like-minded professionals.

04

Engage with senior leaders in the tech space

Mentorship is essential to career advancement, but opportunities to speak with experienced leaders in this industry are often rare. This conference will give attendees access to engaging conversations that offer valuable information that can be leveraged to achieve their desired career goals.

05

Develop your ability to advocate for yourself in the workplace

It can be hard to speak up when it feels like nobody is listening. By sharing experiences where you felt unheard with other attendees, you will be able to identify what self-advocacy skills you are lacking. In doing so, you may discover new ways to ensure that your voice is heard by your peers, colleagues, and leaders.
