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 coders to recruiters to technicians. Through regular events and a digital newsletter, we empower and elevate women working in Madison’s tech scene.

Sign up for our semi-monthly newsletter via http://subscribe.madisonwomen.tech (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 - the occasions when are events are specifically for women and nonbinary folks, we will make it clear in the event description. Unsure if it's OK? Feel free to shoot us an email at admin@madisonwomen.tech and double-check (we're very nice).

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. If you you think your child/children would enjoy an event, or are having trouble finding childcare during an event, we highly encourage you to bring your children.

4th Annual Galentine's Day Celebration!

Short Stack Eatery

WHAT'S GALENTINE'S DAY? Galentine's Day** (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgAOcNNMPKI) was created by Amy Poehler's character Leslie Knope on the TV show "Parks and Recreation", and it's a day to celebrate the cunning, pliable, chestnut-haired sunfishes in your life ... in other words, your women and gender nb friends! WHAT WILL WE DO? We'll craft the women and nb folks in our lives fun, empowering Galentine's Day cards while enjoying delicious food and drinks from local, women-owned breakfast heaven Short Stack Eatery, who has generously provided WiT members a 10% discount (just mention it at the register!). Children are welcome. DO I NEED TO BE THERE RIGHT AT 2:00 PM? Nope! Come by anytime between 2 and 4pm to grab a bite and make some cards. WHAT TO BRING We'll provide some materials and the necessary utensils (scissors, tape, glue) but feel free to bring your own card decorations to share - lace, colored paper, stickers, fabric scraps - whatever inspires you! IMPORTANT TO KNOW Children: The more, the merrier! Accessibility: Short Stack Eatery is an accessible building. Parking: Short Stack doesn't have a parking lot, and street parking can be hit-or-miss. However, there are two ramps nearby: the State Street Capitol Parking Ramp, and the Overture Center Garage. It's also highly accessible by bus. Dietary needs: Short Stack has gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options --------------------------- **Technically, Galentine's Day is on the 13th, but we say it should be more like Galentine's month - one day isn't nearly long enough to celebrate all the beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk oxen that we all love. ❤️

No problem. We will be there to hang, network, & have a beverage with you! Note: Arcade games do cost some quarters and the bar has a change machine.
