About this event

Code switching comes in many forms, but is most commonly exhibited as switching between language or dialect. Consciously or unconsciously, we often code switch as a means to fit in and make those around us feel comfortable. 

Join us for a panel with a dynamically, intersectional group of folx that will share their perspectives and strategies on how to navigate systems that affect Latinx people and those with other traditionally marginalized identities in the tech workplace and beyond. 

Our goal for the event is to help identify language for this behavior and create a sense of unity to help break through the biases that so often plague our working environments. After attending, we hope each attendee walks away with a little more determination, confidence and some real action items on how to navigate code switching in the workplace. All Latinx and allies are welcome to attend.
