Several members of the community that attended our BoF as young graduate students are now in tenure track positions or employed in research organizations. This BOF will allow many of us to meet face to face and to welcome new members to our group. The goal for this year’s gathering is to explore how to do virtual mentoring to help increase ties within the community. Bringing us together allows us to continue nurturing and sponsoring younger Hispanics to succeed in computing.
