Queer Women Who Tech Summit
New York

The Summit

castro street theaterThe Lesbians Who Tech Summit brought together 800 women for an amazing event in San Francisco (pictures here).

Now we’re bringing the magic to New York!

We ran a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the New York Summit, by pre-selling tickets. We basically said to our East Coast members: show us you want a New York Summit! And they did! Over 140 people contributed to make this happen. Learn more about the campaign here.

The Lesbians Who Tech Summit is the only event focused on increasing visibility and tech participation in two historically underrepresented communities: women and LGBTQ. The Summit brings together hundreds of queer women in tech (and the people who love them), for the most unique technology conference ever. We’ll highlight incredible queer women who are the next generation of technical leaders, and the people who have paved the way.

Whether you have a techy job, work at a tech company, or just love technology, we want you to get geeky with other people like you!

The Summit is open to everyone. See you there!
