MAIN EVENT: JUNE 17-21

With Pre-Culture Shifting Weekend events taking place in May

About the Event

Culture Shifting Weekends is an annual invite-only bi-coastal event that takes place in Silicon Valley, and Silicon Alley and Miami. These are the only events of their kind in the United States that unite over 400 accomplished Black & Latinx tech executives, entrepreneurs, investors, innovators and social impact leaders in order to enable deals, collaborations and wealth creation.
 

Each coast has a different format; Silicon Valley is the largest gathering of Black leaders in tech, innovation and social impact to narrow the inequality gap in entrepreneurship, on corporate boards, in tech and in the c-suite. Silicon Alley is the largest gathering of Black and Latinx Venture Capitalists to narrow the inequality gap in this sector. Miami is a hybrid of the two.

 

Culture Shifting Weekend is an annual signature event of Culture Shift Labs; a diversity and innovation management consultancy.
