Nextplay Tech Spotlight 10/8/2020


The community you've been looking for is here. Nextplay is a community of 20,000+ Black & Latinx tech professionals. We build community and connect people of color with career opportunities in tech through networking events centered around culture. Unlike stale and buttoned-up traditional networking events, our unique events are designed for you to be your authentic self, engage in productive career conversations and celebrate culture simultaneously. Watch this video to learn more.

Join us on October 8th as we celebrate & recognize Hispanic Heritage Month by bringing you keynotes from Black and Latinx executive women leaders. Listen as these leaders share success stories along with their playbook of exactly how they did it.
