Ignite #37 Preview: So, You’re Black in Tech?

Rovina Broomfield knows a thing or two about working in tech. She also knows a thing or two about people making assumptions.

So when she found herself at a networking brunch, listening to people describing black techies as though they were mysterious and exceptional, she may not have been surprised. But she was upset. (Upset enough to submit a talk about her feelings to Ignite!)

Rovina will be joining us at Ignite #37 to tell Ignite what being black in tech really means about her and her peers. So, the next time you meet someone else who’s black and in tech, you better understand their identity.

This is part of a series previewing the talks we’ll be hosting at Ignite Seattle #37. Interested? Get your tickets, but make it quick: Ignite Seattle sells out.
