Meeting and connecting with other creatives, tech industry leaders and entrepreneurs in one space is a dream. Fortunately, Tribaja is making it a reality. From May 3 to 5, the digital marketplace and community is hosting their annual conference known as Diversitech. It is geared toward under-supported tech talent and will be held at the Rivers Casino in Philadelphia. This year’s theme for the conference is “Techfluence: Where Industries, Culture, and Technology Collide.” Here’s a look into what’s in store for Diversitech next month and how to attend this year’s conference.
What To Expect At Diversitech 2023
Diversitech is the east coast’s largest three-day tech experience that explores connection between technology and culture. In fact, last year’s conference saw 2,200 attendees and a 91 percent turnout rate. With this mind, expect things to only get bigger and better this year as you’ll be able to enhance your skill set and converse with fellow tech professionals through hands-on workshops, fireside chats and interactive demonstrations.
The line up of speakers for Diversitech 2023 are experts in a range of topics including (but not limited to) AI, cybersecurity, blockchain and Spacetech. Here’s a preview of the industry leaders scheduled to speak at the upcoming conference
- Dele Downs Kooley – CEO/Founder, Dele Kooley Coaching
- Ryaan Boyd – Founder, Black Gov Tech
- Juan Hernandez – VP, Business Development, Pivotal Innovations Inc.
- Shanelle Reese – Chief People Officer, Presence
The conference will also feature special guest speakers who are influencers within this ecosystem including Madelyn Machado (@maddie_macho on TikTok), CEO of Career Finesse. In addition to gaining knowledge from tech experts and professionals, this conference is an opportunity to engage with the hiring teams and recruiters at participating companies.
Following the daytime events, each night will conclude with a curated afterparty where you can network organically in a relaxed, casual setting. Whether you’re curious about the latest innovations in tech or wish to grow your career network of peers, Diversitech is a hub for it all to happen. “We’re on a mission to increase economic mobility in Black and Latinx households through sustainable careers and upskilling. Each year, we get closer to achieving our mission, one person at a time,” Shannon Morales, founder and CEO of Tribaja, says in a press release.
