While we cannot take away the pain our world, especially that of the Black community, we want to to bring awareness and support to Black women in tech. The Women in Technology Conference Louisville is committed to supporting women of all colors. We understand, however, that Black women face the largest hurdles to get into tech jobs and often new technology is created without attention to how it will be used by or affect people of color.
We are therefore grateful to all the Black women who have stepped up in the past to be speakers at the conference. We are committed to continuing to provide an inclusive and supportive environment, to enable a broad spectrum of students to attend the event, to support charitable organizations that are inclusive, and to provide programming that will inform attendees of the issues and how to address them.
