Nextplay was founded in 2017 by Lesley Toche, a former Tech Recruiter & Diversity Program Manager at LinkedIn. We initially launched to create a space where every Black & Latinx tech professional could belong.
We partnered with fortune 500 companies to host networking events centered around live entertainment--executive speakers, hiring managers, live performances, live DJ’s, art, vendors & authentic food/open bar.
Today, Nextplay is a global network of 20,000+ experienced Black & Latinx professionals in the technology industry.
We’ve connected our members with their dream jobs at 70+ major tech companies, hosted events in the U.S, Europe & Africa and added a direct recruiting service to connect talent with opportunity outside of events. We’re closing the wealth gap for Black & Latinx communities by opening doors in the technology industry.
Our community cultivators, brands that have partnered with us that champion diversity, equity and inclusion.
Your recruitment sourcing service - supporting you with a warmer way to connect to Black and Latinx Professionals.
