The BLiT Launch Event was a success at inspiring our local community. Powerful speakers took turns commanding the stage in the iconic Hattiloo Theatre. Each speaker shared their experiences, their expertise, their dreams, and their devout belief in the BLiT Mission. The atmosphere in the room was exceeded expectations as our budding community of minority tech leaders networked and socialized. Blacks & Latinos in Tech was founded to strengthen our community, and we feel our launch event was a great first step towards realizing our goals.
