What we're about

A group for Python ladies and non-binary people of all levels of programming experience, in the NYC metro area. **Trans women welcome.**

---

Pyladies (http://pyladies.com/) is an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Our mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events and social gatherings.

PyLadies also aims to provide a friendly support network for women and a bridge to the larger Python world.

Code of Conduct (http://www.pyladies.com/CodeOfConduct/)

---

Please note that the goal of PyLadies is to provide a welcoming space for women and gender minorities interested in Python so more URGs (under-represented groups) are participating in the greater Python community. It should *not* be perceived as a group for romantic pursuits.
