Nov 9, 2020   3:00 pm  

Presented by HubSpot, join us for the fifth annual “Breaking Barriers: First-Gens in Tech,” an experience for first-generation individuals interested in learning more about what it really means to work in tech.

This year, we're back and bigger than ever, offering a two-day digital experience with over 20+ sessions with tips and advice to break personal and employment barriers going into the tech industry.

Who is considered “first-generation"? For this event, we consider first-gens to be any person:

· who was not born in the US OR
· whose parents were not born in the US OR
· who is the first in their family to attend college OR
· who is the first in their family to enter the corporate world


Our ultimate goal is to provide you with the context, community, and real life examples of other first-gen people doing great things in tech. We will create an opportunity for you to:

· Meet first-generation leaders thriving in the tech scene
· Hear from first-gen individuals from both in and out of HubSpot about their experiences starting their careers
· Leave with actionable tips and takeaways to help kickstart your career regardless of which career path you choose
