Here's 4 Things to Expect From AfroTech World

One of the largest multicultural tech conferences in the U.S. — AfroTech World — has officially kicked off. Although things are a little different this year, we want you to know all of the amazing things you have to look forward to. It’s our way of bringing Black engineers, recruiters, venture capitalists, culture enthusiasts, and everything else under the sun right to your fingertips for the next week!

Here’s a glimpse of what to expect during AfroTech World 2020.

Knowledge

The more you know, the more you grow and you can expect to do just that by learning a variety of skills that will help you to either get your start in your career or to level up and get that promotion.

Whether it’s through joining the Hopin Platform brought to you by the leading gaming companies like Playstation, Niantic, and Riot Games, or learning how to break into the ad biz, we’ve got you covered all week long with sessions that will enhance your skills and help you put the work behind manifesting that next BOSS move!

Network

These days it’s not only about what you know, but who you know, and what better way to add to your Rolodex than mixing and mingling with your peers in the tech space? We have partners — like Slack and Mahogany — hosting events such as the Black Excellence Real talk where you can kick it with people who look like you that come from all walks of life.

Be sure to check the schedule for more networking events like Travel Noire’s Meetup or Disney Team Networking for those of you who may be trying to take your talents to one of the world’s leading mass media and entertainment companies and more.

The best thing about AfroTech World is that you don’t have to come knowing exactly what you want to do in life (because let’s be honest, not all of us may know). This is the perfect opportunity for you to figure out what career may be the best fit for you by hearing first hand from employees of successful companies like YouTube! There’s even a chance to meditate with Nike.

Play

Let’s be real, it wouldn’t be an event if there wasn’t a chance to let your hair down and get into some entertainment! You can head over to The Yard for Vibes and Happy Hour with PJ Morton, Tevin Scott’s “Taste of the Mecca” film screening, Trap Yoga, and we even have a beach for you to catch more vibes brought by DJ Kennedy!

The vibes at AfroTech World will be endless! So what are you waiting for? If you haven’t already downloaded the application and set up your own personal avatar, head over to AfroTech World.
