A community/support network that is looking to support people who identify as Women and/or Gender non-conforming in the South West of the UK who are working in Technology, want to get into tech, are interested in tech or are Tech-Adjacent.
We're discovering what the community wants from this kind of group in January/February 2019 through AGM type meetings and therefore the name may change and the mission statement will be drafted then :)
Like a Stitch and Bitch - but a techies version!
Sometimes you need to blow off a little steam about what irks you about being a marginalised person in the tech world.
For this one we'll focus on Tech + Mental Health.
Is tech a harder industry to be in with regards to staying mentally and emotionally healthy?
What are the unique challenges women, non-binary and marginalised folks have with mental health in tech?
** Actively looking for 3-4 speakers in the local tech scene to discuss their experiences. Particularly those with experience of Mental Health difficulties and other impairments
As before, this event need intersectional representation so we'll actively seek a woman of colour, impaired folks and LGBTQIA+ folks**
