Latino Techies is the first tech network in Chicago for Latino millennials. Despite Latinos’ affinity for consuming technology, only 7 percent of the STEM workforce is Latino. We want to do our part to change that. The mission of Latino Techies is to transform our community to see tech in a new way, not just as consumers but as creators of technology.
