THE STATE OF BLACK TECH was held on Thursday, October 27, 2011 ~Busboys and Poets, Hyattsville (MD)
I attended this event and the facility was magnificent. The meeting was held in a very nice restaurant in a spacious and comfortable room, complete with a stage. Much of the discussion concerned the obstacles facing minorities entering the tech field. There was also an exchange of ideas about steps that could be taken to develop strategies to overcome common barriers. Overall, it was uplifting to see an organized dialogue regarding diversity in technology.
The State of Black Tech aims to be the catalyst for a much needed local discussion on the status of black technologists within the greater technology entrepreneur and innovation space.
