Details:

More than 4,000 Latinx technologists, business leaders, philanthropists, investors, developers, innovators, designers and content creators will convene virtually during LTX Fest 2020, the largest gathering of Latinx professionals in technology.

Organized by the Kapor Center, Latinas in Tech, LA Collab, Outco, LatinxVC, Latino Community Foundation, 3Lopez and Techqueria, the four-day conference will take place from October 13-16, 2020.

Through interactive networking, pre-recorded and live online streaming sessions featuring more than 70 speakers, community and technology leaders such as actor, activist and director America Ferrera, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti, influential journalist Paola Ramos, investors Adeyemi Ajao and Miriam Rivera, digital media and cultural leader Beatriz Acevedo and many more.

As many Latinx bear the brunt of COVID-19 – a crisis that has amplified painful inequalities such as access to healthcare, remote work and broadband – LTX Fest provides an innovative space to unite and help the community move forward. And as the United States approaches a critical election, this timely conference will also address issues of Latinx-centered equity and inclusion. For the first time, over 32 million Latinos are eligible to vote this November making them the largest racial or ethnic group in a U.S. presidential election.

Latinx are the least represented demographic in technology, totaling just eight percent of the total high-tech workforce and three percent of tech leadership, despite being the country’s largest ethnic community. And their purchasing power is expected to reach 1.9 trillion by 2023. This representation gap will continue to widen if not addressed, compounding other Latinx equity gaps. LTX Fest was founded in 2017 in response to these issues, with last year’s in-person annual conference bringing together more than 1,300 members.

“A career in technology changed my life – providing upward mobility and an opportunity to help shape the future. However, for technology to advance, Latinx must collectively be represented across the entire ecosystem – from creators, to designers, to investors, and owners,” said Lili Gangas, Chief Technology Community Officer of the Kapor Center.

“Come October, LTX Fest will mobilize thousands of Latinx to unlock technology’s transformative power, to create a space for innovation and skill building, to advance our professional lives as well as civic engagement during this important election year.”
