Attending the Lesbians Who Tech Summit showed me my career horizon is much greater than I imagined. Seeing these role models and peers, knowing I am not the lone female engineer but Instead one of many gives me greater confidence in putting myself out there as a lesbian in technology.
It’s so rare to have a space that’s dedicated to both who I am and what I do — this summit is IT if you are lesbian/queer and working in tech! 🙂 After the Summit was over, I felt like I grew 3 feet taller from meeting so many successful, ambitious smart women. I now know I can indeed dream bigger — and make it happen.
