Engaging sessions that go beyond just technology

If you’ve seen our agenda, you’ll know that we like to do things a bit differently here at Black Tech Fest. We have three jam-packed days of keynote speeches, panel discussions and fireside chats covering a range of topics including black activism, corporate philanthropy, allyship, mentoring, gaming, crypto, unconscious bias and cancel culture. With sessions like “White guilt: The black community isn't just charity” and “LGBTQIA Activism”, you can be sure that this is no ordinary tech festival!
