The conference will be held July 6 through July 8, featuring some of the industry’s finest Silicon Valley Mentors, Celebrity Guests, and Public Figures. Hip Hop Leaders use Hip Hop to engage with teens.
This life-changing, college experience event will be held footsteps away from the iconic Silicon Valley and is free for teens 13 to 17 years of age that are from under-represented groups. At this conference, the teens will receive invaluable, hands-on Internet Technology (“IT”) training, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (“STEM”) mentorship coupled with hands-on cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, blockchain, and data privacy workshops.

It provides a space for teens to be taught from some of the greatest minds in the industry.
Also in attendance will be Hip Hop Celebrity Guest, Zayion McCall, of global craze “JuJu on That Beat.” Zayion is the main feature of the cyber classes students will take part in. Students will learn about cyber as they help Zayion, who will pretend to have been hacked and needs the students to mitigate the attack. It is here, with Zayion’s help, Hip Hop Leaders will glamorize being an engineer, the same way society glamorizes being a professional athlete or Hip-Hop artist.
“This program is made for making a change, and we use Hip Hop to energize and inspire STEM learning. It provides a space for teens to be taught from some of the greatest minds in the industry,” explains Hip Hop Leaders founder and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (“NATO”) & ISACA European Cyber Specialist, Frank Satterwhite.
Kevin Nichols, a powerful voice for diversification in technology, heartfeltly expresses, “The best part about a conference like this is everyone involved has the singular goal to only further diversity in STEM.”
A powerful part of this conference is the solidarity among all the speakers, celebrities, and their intentions. Though all contributors are heavily committed to supporting women in STEM, they are equally committed and devoted to the desperate need for all dimensions of diversity in STEM.
The goal for this conference is to glamorize being an IT Professional, the same way society glamorizes being a professional athlete or Hip-Hop artist. Students from California and military families around the world arrive at the conference sharing and celebrating a common ground—their “relationship” with Hip-Hop. Hip Hop is global and because of this has the power to bring diverse groups of people together through shared respect and love for the art and culture.
