Remember, sharing is caring!

Social media has become a huge tool for inspiration and impact, especially for Austin’s own Ricky Sánchez. He became inspired to spark change after reading a tweet by Lara Hogan, VP of Engineering at Etsy.

In response, he wrote the article Sponsoring and promoting women and minorities in tech, which expressed his thoughts and next plan of action. Soon after, the Austin Diversity in Tech Meetup was born. Its goal is to promote women and minorities who are involved, or want to be involved, in the Austin tech scene.

If you are a woman or minority and want to present or pitch an idea, your startup, or simply share your story with this new meetup, please email meetup@ontechies.com to secure your spot with the following information:

• Your name and title

• Name of startup / business

• Presentation topic
