What we're about
Who are Lesbians Who Tech?
Lesbians Who Tech is a community of queer women in or around tech (and the people who love them). Whether you work at a tech company, have a technical job or just love technology. Yes, even if you’re just obsessed with every new app that comes out! We're a professional networking group, and host monthly happy hours. If you have any suggestions for future events, please get in touch!
Do I have to be a Lesbian?
Definitely not! Lesbians Who tech is committed to convening queer women in technology (and our allies) in a vibrant and inclusive community. We work together to promote the visibility and inclusion of women, LGBTQ people, and people from other backgrounds under-represented in technology.
If you work to move this mission forward, we want you on our team. Nobody ‘has to be’ a lesbian to be in this community. We use the term to honor those who crossed a firewall with it.
How do we show LGBTQ (and Allied) Pride?
We create a culture of vibrant inclusion when we make spaces for ourselves and others to be influential. If we have a larger share of privilege, we show allied pride by making space to support others. We show pride when we hire people, finance projects, create opportunities, and share resources. We show pride when we work to move our community forward, together.
