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.

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: Virtual Catch Phrase!

Online event

Are you good at explaining concepts? Do you like to play guessing games? This is the social for you! All genders are welcome at this group social event, and children and family members are encouraged to play, too. * About * Schedule * Zoom * Accessibility / Inclusion * Code of Conduct ___________________________________ ABOUT We'll be playing a modified version of the classic game "Catch Phrase", using an online random word generator. The goal for each player is to get their team to say the word or word phrase assigned them by the online word generator: "A clue-giver can make any physical gesture, and can give almost any verbal clue, but may not say a word that rhymes with any of the words, give the first letter of a word, say the number of syllables, or say part of any word in the clue (e.g., 'worry' for 'worry wart')." When the team guesses correctly, the other team takes its turn! Zoom URL for this event will be shared day-of. SCHEDULE Feel free to join the zoom anytime between 7:00 and 7:15pm; the game will begin at 7:15pm. Running late? Feel free to hop in whenever, and if we've decided to play with teams, we'll assign you to one :) ZOOM Zoom URL for this event will be shared day-of. Zoom is a free video-conferencing platform, with mobile and desktop apps.
