Black IMPACT Technology Experience Summit

August 23, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm CDT


By popular demand and out of necessity at this historic time and place in our country, aSTEAM Village, The Wisconsin Black Chamber of Commerce, The Heartland Black Chamber of Commerce, and the Hispanic Economic Development Corporation KC have joined arms to bring to Kansas City the Black IMPACT Technology Experience.

This informative and necessary summit is designed to be a working and collaborative convening of some amazing leaders in the technology space, engineering space, and most importantly of all, the community of collaboration space utilizing technology.

We purposely asked each of our workshop facilitators, presenters, and keynote speakers to make their north star for a successful session, being that attendees walk away from the workshop with something tangible and impactful that they can immediately implement for good upon their return home.

aSTEAM Village, Room Hotel Block, must be reserved by August 8th, 2023, to get the aSTEAM Village Room Hotel Block Discount.

All reservations will need to be made by 5:00 pm local hotel time on 8.8.23 to receive your contracted rate of $179.00.
