Turning Failure into Fuengo (Hosted by Slack)

  • Slack 500 Howard Street San Francisco, CA, 94105 United States (map)

Slack invites you to talk about failure

As people of color working in tech, we are surrounded by stories of success, but rarely do we feel comfortable enough sharing our own missteps.

At Turning #FailureIntoFuego, we’ll welcome a panel of successful Latinx professionals in the tech industry to talk about how they've embraced moments of failure in their careers and turned them into opportunities for growth.

Join us for an inspiring evening with intimate conversation, food and drink, dance lessons and more at Slack HQ in San Francisco, in partnership with Earthtones (Slack's employee resource group for people of color) and The Latinx Collective.

6:00PM - 7:00PM Networking & Activities
