Lesbians in technology would be gathering in Washington D.C. on Thursday May 17 to unwind and for some mentoring sessions.
Organizers of the event say “Lesbians Who Tech + Allies members” will enjoy a private cocktail lounge.
The event will take place during the Tech Jobs Tour DC stop at WeWork near The White House on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The tour stop is from 5-9pm but members are welcome to join for the entire night.
Lesbians Who Tech + Allies is a global community of over 40,000 LGBTQ women (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer) and gender nonconforming people in tech.
Lesbians Who Tech says it promotes the visibility, leadership, and education of its community.
Lesbians Who Tech + Allies is the largest LGBTQ technology community in the world. It says it is committed to visibility, intersectionality, and changing the face of technology.
The 40,000 non-binary, LGBTQ women, queer women of color (and our allies) in tech who make up its community come from every background and live in over 40+ cities worldwide.
Over 5,000 women and non-binary people in tech attend their San Francisco Summit, making them the largest professional LGBTQ event in the world and the largest event for women in tech in California.
Its programmatic work includes a coding scholarship for non-binary and LGBTQ women called the Edie Windsor Coding Scholarship Fund, a mentoring program, Bring a Lesbian to Work Day, and a leadership program — #LWTSQUAD — focused on supporting members as they move into senior leadership roles and onto corporate boards.
“We’re not just creating communities; we’re pushing the tech sector to be more inclusive and changing the face of the entire tech industry,” the community says.
