First and foremost, PyLadies Vancouver reside and share knowledge on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh, Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh Nations. We encourage participation from members from Indigenous communities across Canada.
PyLadies Vancouver is a Python programming group for women in the Vancouver area. We welcome people who have never programmed before, experienced programmers, and everyone in between.
At PyLadies we welcome all women, inclusive of trans women. Further we would like to extend a special invitation to nonbinary folks, as many (but not all) of the oppressions facing women in our industry are also experienced by nonbinary individuals. Persons with any gender identity are welcome to attend our meetups, but should respect that PyLadies Vancouver is a place where women's voices are centered.
PyLadies (http://www.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.
