What we're about

WiSE (Women in Software Engineering) is a community organized by Codesmith, that supports the empowerment and equal representation of women and other minority groups in software engineering, specifically, as well as in the broader tech industry.

Every month, we host talks, panels and workshops led by powerful women leading innovation in technology. All are welcome to attend!

----

We’d love to continue our efforts to empower and support women in tech by hosting more events throughout the year. We’re always looking for companies and speakers that would like to help us carry our mission forward.

If you have a project you’d like to talk about, are working on something you find interesting, or are passionate about a certain technology and would like to share it with our community, email us at hello@codesmith.io.
