This is a social meetup focused on queer women, trans, and non-binary folks that work (or aspire to work) in tech (or tech adjacent*) jobs.
Is it socializing? Yes. Is it networking? Yes. Is it Lesbians Who Tech? No. But the awesomeness of the LWT Summits did inspire me to start this meetup. Is it queer-ally welcoming? Yes. Is it the place to find a date? It could be. The odds are definitely higher here than at the traditional cis-male tech meetups that exist.
What you can expect from this meetup: - SF Bay Area events - Possible name tags (makes it easier to remember names and pronouns) - Chill vibes and great folks!
*No one will be checking your work badge, so if you don’t work in tech that’s okay ;-)
**We will strive to choose bars and places that are safe spaces for queer folks, but note that most event spots are open to the public and it’s unlikely we will have a roped off area or private room. Please message me if you want to recommend an overtly queer-friendly bar or event space in SF or Oakland.
***If you want to organize an event for this QiT group please message me and I'll make you an Event Organizer. To become an Event Organizer you must have RSVP'd Yes and attended at least 1 event as a guest member.
This should go without saying, but I will say it anyway to be very clear: Racism, Homophobia, Transphobia, Fatphobia, and Misogyny are not welcome and will absolutely not be tolerated.
