Out in Tech SF | Breaking into Tech

May 21, 2019 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

UPDATE:  For those unable to make it, we will be live streaming the panel discussion here! We are slated to start the chat at 7p PST, but you can tune in as early as 6:30p PST. 




As the tech industry continues to grow with unparalleled opportunity, many are left on the outside – wondering how they too can be a part of the innovation. Having the right skills is just one of the challenges people face. The roadblocks of breaking into tech are exacerbated for marginalized communities and LGBTQ+ people, who may not have the “right” background and don’t have a clear path.


Join Out in Tech SF at Asana for an all-star panel of experts who know what it takes to ‘Break into Tech’. We’ll hear their stories and discuss how they’re actively working to uplift marginalized communities. 




Agenda
6:00 PM | Doors
7:00 PM | Panel discussion
8:00 PM | Networking




Snacks and beverages provided
Eventbrite RSVP free and required
21+ to attend

Moderated by



Jessica Clayton – Senior Product Manager, Zorroa & SF Leadership Team Member, Out in Tech


Jessica is a Senior Product Manager at Zorroa, a visual machine learning company. The path here was less than straight-forward. 5 years ago she couldn’t land a job at a tech company despite hundreds of conversations. So, she spun up her own consulting firm, worked retail and in fitness to help with bills, and finally landed her first tech job after a year-long hunt. She recently joined Zorroa to fulfill her dream of making ethical machine learning available to the masses.
