Black in Tech Summit presented by Deloitte

April 13 @ 12:00 - 14:30 CDT

Capital Factory welcomes you to our 3rd Annual Black In Tech Summit!

***New Date!! 🗓 Capital Factory Black in Tech – Presented by Deloitte rescheduled to Tuesday, April 13, 2021, 12noon to 2:30pm.

The delay will give our participants and audience time to regroup after the storm, and give Black in Tech the focus and attention it deserves. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause you. With record registration numbers and a tremendous lineup of speakers and panelists, you don’t want to miss it! ⚡️

We’re dedicated to increasing diversity in the tech community and making our coworking space an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and identities. 

Check out our 2019 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Report, which reflects on our work the past few years, what we’re doing currently, and how we want to continue improving in the future. Read more about it here. If you have any feedback or comments, we’d love to hear from you!

**IMPORTANT NOTE: This event will be entirely virtual and live-streamed on Hopin for attendees.

Headlining the summit is Opportunity Hub’s (OHUB) CEO and Executive Chairman, Rodney Sampson. Rodney’s mission is to ensure that everyone, particularly socially disadvantaged communities, have equitable access to the new multi-generational wealth to reduce poverty and the racial wealth gap.
