Rebecca Woodmass (they/them), a trained classical soprano, is a non-binary lesbian now working in tech. For the last two years they have immersed themself in the tech sector, co-leading the Montreal chapter of Lesbians Who Tech (& Allies) to be one of the most active chapters in their global network. They founded QueeriT, a social good web design and development enterprise by and for queers (and those who love us). They also co-founded Awoken Tech with Rachel Jean-Pierre, offering diversity and inclusion consulting, training, and evangelism in the enterprise and startup space. Rebecca is now applying their talents in speaking, writing, and programming to their studies in applied machine learning and artificial intelligence for social change as a founding employee of AI startup Crescendo. They have been called a “rising star in the queer/feminist movement” and works tirelessly for the visibility of racialized, disabled, queer and trans folks in the tech sector, as well as in society at large. They love cycling, writing poetry, gardening, and their cat, Didi.
Diverse representation is a priority for us. We're proud to say that our Summit speakers are 80% queer women, 50% women of color, 25% Black & Latinx, and 15% transgender and gender nonconforming.
