Black Geek Week brings together industry leaders and a black and brown population that’s woefully underrepresented. Not in numbers, but in recognition. We have a much larger community of geeks than people give credit for. This forum brings them together.
We gather top technologists, engineers, creators, and thinkers that happen to be of color to celebrate creativity, software development, artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual reality, IoT, machines, transportation innovation, alternative energy, robotics, data, and other products of audacity that bring engineering to life as well as the ideas, innovation, and entrepreneurship that underpin them. All already have the ability and drive. We contribute connectivity, camaraderie, and intellectual discussion that accelerate our community and create relationships that foster even faster growth curves.
