About us

We officially launched on 9/15/22 with the idea of making it easier for those in tech to build a community that transcends across companies and economic barriers, in-person and virtually. That same community can help others by making it easier to connect and understand how to "break into" tech. We are a proud veteran and minority led 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Why SOMOS.tech 

The word SOMOS is Spanish and Portuguese for "we are" and tech to represent that we are tech.  This idea came from having a conversation with Nathalia Dunlap, who co-founded SOMOS early in career network in the Employee Resource Group at Microsoft where she led the creation of a community for Hispanic and Latinx employees.
