Being Black & trans in the tech world is a two-sided coin. On one side, the tech world has not been welcoming of underrepresented communities. On the other side, it offers economic advancement for many. In this talk, E.C. Pizarro III, entrepreneur, brand designer, and Executive Director of TransTech Social Enterprises, will share his story of working as a creative in tech, explain the importance of supporting emerging tech talent from marginalized backgrounds, and offer his best advice for intersectional thinking professionals to find their footing in tech. Visibility for marginalized communities, in tech, has come a long way - but there is so much more to go! Join the journey with E.C. and TransTech Social as they shift the culture of what it means to be black and trans in tech.
