                Talented and highly skilled working-age disabled and neurodiverse adults participate in the workforce significantly less than those without disabilities — and experience unemployment rates much higher than their able-bodied and neurotypical peers.

                Various factors influence these stark realities, such as discrimination and unconscious bias, barriers in recruitment processes, or workplaces that are designed for able-bodied, neurotypical workers.

                At this summit, PowerToFly wants to flip the status quo on its head by destigmatizing disabilities and neurodivergence in the workplace, both visible and invisible. Join disability inclusion experts and neurodiversity advocates as they address:

                • Understanding neurodiversity
                • The benefits and drawbacks that hybrid and remote work can have on a person with a disability
                • Respectful and inclusive language
                • The historical context of disability in the public sphere
                • Accessible technology
                • And much more!

                The summit will conclude with a virtual job fair featuring companies that are committed to neurodiversity and disability inclusion. Representatives will answer candidates’ questions about how they are creating and maintaining inclusive spaces.

                According to Tech.co, since Generative AI was released in late 2022, it’s been picked up by almost half of U.S. companies, and 93% of these firms are looking to expand its use. But we are only starting to see the impact of tools such ChatGPT, Bard and AI in general on the future of work — and the future of DEIB.

                Join us at Emerging Tech: Advancing DEIB in the Digital Age, as we explore AI and other new tools and their transformative effect. This groundbreaking gathering brings together industry leaders, technologists, and advocates to delve into the opportunities and challenges that will or already have emerged in our fast-changing business landscape and the world at large. Through thought-provoking discussions, interactive sessions, and real-world case studies, attendees will gain insights into the latest tools on the market.

                At Emerging Tech, we will delve into the potential benefits of AI to not only enhance operational efficiency and drive business growth but also to address biases, promote fairness, and ensure equitable outcomes. We’ll also address the inherent challenges and biases that may be ingrained in this emerging technology.

                We’ll wrap up the summit with a free virtual job fair where you’ll be able to hear directly from hiring companies about their own emerging technologies, plus meet directly with talent leaders and hiring managers to learn more about open roles.

                At PowerToFly, we know that Latinidad encompasses a range of diverse experiences and identities — and that Latin American heritage and culture influence both language and identity in the workplace.

                Join us as we gather with Latino/a & Hispanic leaders and changemakers to discuss topics such as bilingualism, the need for greater representation in the C-suite, how to mentor and sponsor Latino/a and Latin American talent, and more. You won't want to miss this free opportunity to connect with your peers, network with top companies, and learn from leaders who've been in your shoes!

                Also check out the virtual job fair on the last day of the summit, where companies will chat with candidates and answer questions about their Latino/a representation and corporate culture.

                Previous speakers at our Latinidad summit include: Licy Do Canto, managing director, Washington D.C., APCO Worldwide; Congressman Ritchie Torres; Patricia Mota, CEO of the Hispanic Alliance for Career Advancement; former NASA Chief Engineer and Associate VP, University of Houston-Clear Lake, Evelyn Miralles; Juan Labourt, business program manager at Google UK, and many more!
