We'll discuss what it's really like to be a prominent womxn on the internet. The positives and negatives. The why. And how we can all help the internet be just a little bit safer for everyone.

- Chloe Condon (https://twitter.com/ChloeCondon) is a musical theatre performer turned Cloud Advocate at Microsoft. When she's not tweeting, or teaching students in academic institutions how to use Azure, she works with folks from non-traditional backgrounds entering tech by supporting and mentoring through workshops, bootcamps, and 1:1 to help make tech a diverse and supportive space for all.

- Ceora Ford (https://twitter.com/ceeoreo_) is a software engineer based in Philadelphia. Her career thus far has centered around creating content that will make the tech industry more accessible. She’s been able to work with amazing companies like DigitalOcean, egghead.io, and Kode With Klossy.
