What we're about

Madison Women in Tech is a supportive, inclusive community of women and gender nonbinary folks working or interested in technology, from designers to programmers to recruiters to students. Through regular events and a digital newsletter, we empower and elevate women and enbys in Madison’s tech scene.

Sign up for our semi-monthly newsletter via http://subscribe.madisonwomen.tech , featuring community events, WiT news, volunteer opportunities and job openings. Follow us on Twitter at @Madison_WiT (http://www.twitter.com/Madison_WiT) and find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/wit.madison/).

COVID-19 UPDATE

The safety of our members is paramount; as such, we have moved our programming online for the foreseeable future.

WHO CAN ATTEND OUR EVENTS?

Any woman or nonbinary person interested in or working in technology is welcome at ALL of our events.

Men are welcome at most of our events, but not all; occasionally, we host events that are specifically for women and nonbinary folks. In either case, we will make it clear in the event description. Still unsure if it's appropriate for you to attend? Feel free to shoot us an email at admin@madisonwomen.tech and double-check (we're very nice ❤️).

CHILDREN

We highly encourage you to bring children along! We aren't often able to provide dedicated childcare, and some of our events might not be appropriate for children (depending on their age), but we try to choose event spaces that are child-friendly.

ACCESSIBILITY / INCLUSIVE EVENT SPACES

With rare exceptions, all our in-person events are hosted at accessible locations near multiple public transportation options; we also work to have gender neutral bathrooms available at every in-person event. When food is involved, we make sure to have items available for vegan and gluten-free attendees.

CODE OF CONDUCT

Madison Women in Tech deliberately curates spaces for and by women and nonbinary folks. At in-person and virtual events where men are invited to attend, they are expected to listen, and not center themselves or their experiences.

All attendees, at both in-person and virtual events, agree to adhere to the Madison Women in Tech code of conduct: http://coc.madisonwomen.tech (http://coc.madisonwomen.tech/)

SOCIAL: "Lettering with a Kindred Spirit"

Online event

NOTE: This online-only event will utilize the free video platform Zoom (installation instructions are below). Art supplies will not be included. WIT is sponsoring this event, so no payment required! Join us in this FREE calligraphy social, hosted by Kindred. All genders and age groups are welcome to this event! If you would like to know more about Kindred's Airbnb Calligraphy Class, here is her link: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/1713500 ___________________________________ ABOUT "We will dive into the elegant art of Hand-lettering. Similar to calligraphy in style, yet different in materials, lettering only requires basic washable markers, sharpies, or your favorite pen. We will begin by exploring the basic strokes of lettering. From there we will examine different styles to diversify our artwork. Once we feel comfortable with some of the basics, we will begin lettering words and longer quotes. Ultimately, you will create a card or small poster that you feel proud of, and that represents you well. The best set up for this experience would be to use your device and put it so that you have both hands free. Lettering requires working on any hard surface like a table, clipboard, desk, etc. " WHAT TO BRING A note that buying materials is not required; you can use whatever writing utensils you have access to :) Kindred suggests the following: - Lettering Pens (The Tombow brand or any sort of brush pen/marker) - Washable Crayola Markers - Sharpies - Sharpened Pencils with Erasers - Ruler - Blank White Paper SCHEDULE Please arrive promptly at 2 pm Central Time and stay on the Zoom channel until 3 pm. Out of respect to our host and teacher, we encourage attendees to stay for the duration of the event. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns: [masked]. CODE OF CONDUCT While this event is open to all genders, Madison Women in Tech deliberately curates spaces for and by women and nonbinary folks. Men who attend are expected to listen, and not center themselves or their experiences. All attendees agree to adhere to the Madison Women in Tech code of conduct: http://coc.madisonwomen.tech
