This page features panels at SXSW Interactive 2013 that will be presented within the BiT House at the Hilton-Garden Inn.
Additionally - this page includes panels that will take place outside of the BiT House that self-selected BiT as a tag, or have panelists or subject matter that we think is of particular interest to blacks in tech. If you would like to have a panel included on this page, please email the SXSW schedule page url to us at email@example.com.
Communities that are focused on minority techs are popping up everywhere to drive conversations and shift perceptions. Engineers and technologists of color in these communities are constantly engaging in thoughtful and technical conversations in order to advance individual and cultural knowledge but also to change the perception of minority techs from the inside and the outside. Out of these communities we must produce tech thought leaders. Highly knowledgeable individuals that are at the forefront of cutting edge technology. Join the discussion as we highlight four (4) Tech Trailblazers as they share their expertise on building communities and the future of organizing the black tech community for greater success.
These tech trailblazers are people you should know or get to know if you are in technology. They don't just talk a good game, they are strategic thinkers with a track record of execution and success. They have the wisdom, will, passion, dedication, and expertise in their respective domain to build a community of new leaders and followers to stomp the divide.
