AfroTech is a platform on a mission to uplift the Black tech community, and it’s a safe space for people to take their innovative ideas to the next level.
Over the past few years, various AfroTech events have set the stage for career development and elevation like never before.
While the AfroTech Conference is one of the more popular, large-scale events, we also have you covered with more intimate meet-ups throughout the year.
Take, for instance, AfroTech Executive — the multi-city event series which empowers corporate executives, investors, and tech moguls. On March 30, AfroTech will take over the northwest region with a stop in Seattle, WA.
There will be a fireside chat with Laxman Narasimhan, the leader who has officially become the chief executive officer (CEO) of Starbucks, succeeding Howard Schultz, the company’s founder and former CEO.
There will also be a chat with Uncharted founder and CEO Jessica O. Matthews. For their conversation on AI and sustainability, Jonnie Bradley — Acting Director and Responsible Artificial Intelligence Officer at the U.S. Department of Energy — will be the moderator.
In true AfroTech fashion, no event is all work with no play. Followed by the informational sessions, there will be a networking reception with sounds led by DJ Blast x The Collective.
