Breaking Barriers: FIRST-GENS IN TECH 2021 (hosted by Hubspot)

Think working in tech is just about coding? Think again.



HubSpot’s FIRST-GENS IN TECH returns for its sixth edition, delivering an experience for first-generation individuals interested in learning more about what it really means to work in tech.

The tech industry continues to be one of the fastest growing industries all around the world, and there are so many job opportunities in tech just waiting to be filled. After attending our event, you’ll not only learn which jobs will help you break into the industry, but also how to ask your imposter syndrome to take the day off (or several) and to gain tips for landing your first job in tech.
Who is considered “first-generation”? For this event, we consider first-gens to be any person:

who was not born in your country of residence OR

whose parents were not born in your country of residence OR

who is the first in their family to attend college/university OR

who is the first in their family to enter the corporate world

Why attend?

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 various tech companies about their experiences starting their careers

Leave with actionable tips and takeaways to help kickstart your career regardless of which career path you choose in tech

The event is finished.
