What we're about

Madison Women in Tech is a supportive 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/).

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 your 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 events are hosted at accessible locations near multiple public transportation options; we also try to include information in individual event descriptions re: availability of gender neutral bathrooms. 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 events where men are invited to attend, they 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 (http://coc.madisonwomen.tech/)
