Philly Black Tech Community: How Are We Doing?
The BENgineers, an internal Comcast community for black technology professionals, would like to invite you to discuss the state of the black tech community with a panel of Philadelphian tech leaders.
Join the panelists at LIFT Labs PHL inside the Comcast Technology Center as we take a look back at what has been done throughout Philadelphia to support the growing black tech community and the progress made to close the gap on the digital divide. You'll hear in detail what the panelists are doing to open up educational opportunities for not only for K-12, but for adults looking for a career change. We will discuss how a culture of entrepreneurship and coaching is being cultivated to change the landscape of startup founders to include more black faces. And most importantly, hear about their visions for the future of the black tech community and what can be done to make improvements.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions, make suggestions, and learn how to get engaged in the community to join the movement
