About First-Gens in Tech

HubSpot's FIRST-GENS IN TECH is a personalized experience for first-generation individuals interested in learning more about what it really means to work in tech.

After attending our event (now in its eighth year in 2023), you'll not only learn which jobs will help you break into the industry, but also how to ask your imposter syndrome to take the day off (or several) and to gain tips for landing your first job in tech!

Who is considered “first-generation"?
For this event, we consider first-gens to be any person:
  • who was not born in your country of residence OR
  • whose parents were not born in your country of residence OR
  • who is the first in their family to attend college/university OR
  • who is the first in their family to enter the corporate world

In addition to providing the contextcommunity, and real life examples of other first-gen people doing great things in tech, it's important to address that the job market today is tough and can be honestly very challenging to navigate.

That's why we're taking a different approach this year to help you navigate the tech industry in our current times.

  • Meet first-generation leaders thriving in the tech scene
  • Hear from first-gen individuals about their experiences starting their careers
  • Leave with actionable tips and takeaways to plan your career search thoughtfully and navigate today's challenging job market
