This is an all-day workshop for women, trans, and non-binary technologists*, customized to empower them as leaders in tech!

Want to learn how to own your expertise and present yourself and your accomplishments with confidence? Convert your expertise into thought leadership, conference speaking, and open source contributing.

The workshop will help you think more expansively about your knowledge and experience, laying the foundation for you to become a writer, conference speaker, and open source contributor.

In this workshop, you'll go through a few exercises around our theme, "Speak Your Truth", generate a list of topics you can write or speak about, present yourself as an expert, and get introduced to writing, speaking, and coding for open source. The workshop will also have new exercises for those who have previously attended!

We take accessibility and accommodating our attendee's needs seriously at Write/Speak/Code.If you have any accessibility needs, please let us know (in your event registration) or via email at [masked] by Saturday, June 15th

In addition to amazing content, we provide breakfast and lunch for all dietary needs, ensure the location is wheelchair accessible, provide a nursing room and a supervised play area for children, offer CART/ASL services, and accommodate any other accessibility needs.

*We define 'technologist' as anyone who has written a line of code (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ruby, Python, Java, SQL whatever) and can explain what it does.
