About the Event

Culture Shifting Weekends is an annual invite-only event that takes place in Silicon Valley, 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.
