It can be hard for Latinos to break into the field of tech, they often lack social capital and funding. Tech writer Sara Inés Calderon and DIY Girls founder Luz Rivas join Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa for our live show in Austin to talk about these obstacles and why they believe being a Latino is actually an asset in the world of engineering and innovation.
