Breaking Barriers: FIRST-GENS IN TECH 2021

HubSpot’s FIRST-GENS IN TECH event 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.

Here’s what you can expect from this year’s virtual experience:

SLACK COMMUNITY – Engage with speakers and connect in breakout channels with your fellow first-gens to share your experience and start dialogues about the discussions we’ll host.

ON-DEMAND CAREER PREP LIBRARY – From guides to our popular Lightning Talks, dive into sessions and resources about approaching your job search as a first-gen at your own pace. All available on-demand for viewing whenever it fits your schedule.

LIVE SESSIONS – Learn about careers in tech and how fellow first-gens broke into the industry first-hand – from first-gens in tech themselves. (Can’t make all the live sessions? Don’t worry – we’ll record them for on-demand viewing later!)

Topics we’ll cover include but are not limited to:

– Types of opportunities in tech — technical (user experience, software engineering) AND non-technical (sales, marketing, customer success, etc)
– How fellow first-gens got started and translated their STEM and non-STEM experience into tech
– Networking and the art of coffee chats
– Job application and interview advice
– And more!
