This year marks the 7th Annual Latinos in Technology Innovation and Social Media (LATISM) conference scheduled October 28-30th, 2015 at the JW Marriott, 1331 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington D.C. Our theme is titled: “Igniting Latinos to Drive the Innovation Economy.”
LATISM members, along with tech innovators, White House dignitaries, corporate leaders, policy experts, and investors, will convene to showcase the contributions of the Latino community to technology, innovation, and economic growth.
The conference will also address challenges and opportunities that we face as a nation with the continued shortage of STEM workers and a growing Hispanic population not equipped to fill the jobs of the next century.
This week’s twitter chat is dedicated to our conference theme. Join us this Thursday at 9PM ET using the hasthtag #LATISM15 to discuss the catalyst for innovation, economic growth, and how to transform the Latino talent to the next generation of innovators and tech producers.
