Join the Muskie School for a Lunch and Learn session with David Delmar Sentíes on “Workforce training as an act of economic liberation”.
Where: 128 Wishcamper, Portland Campus and via Zoom
When: Wednesday October 25 from noon to 1 p.m.
David Delmar Sentíes is the author of What We Build With Power: The fight for economic justice in tech. It’s an urgent call for organizing shared strategies in order to disrupt the tech industry and move toward a more economically inclusive and equitable workforce. David’s also the Founder Resilient Coders, a highly competitive, free, and stipended nonprofit coding bootcamp that trains people of color from low income backgrounds for high growth careers as software engineers. Resilient Coders has been recognized by the White House (2016), featured in TechCrunch, Fast Company News, Boston Globe, Boston Herald, BostInno, Bay State Banner, NPR, NECN, Xconomy, and other news outlets. David is especially proud of having been recognized by El Planeta as an influential member of Boston’s Hispanic community. He has an awkward habit of trying to relate everything back to Latin America’s history of expropriation, unironically over coffee.
