One of the vibrant communities and meetup groups I’ve helped run over the years was a quarterly Women in Tech JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion) Meetup Group. During the COVID-19 pandemic between 2020-2021, women in tech met virtually over Zoom every quarter to discuss how to bring more women into the tech & STEM fields, how to teach more girls and women to code, how to improve job opportunities and working environments for all women (including but not limited to: working mothers, trans women, indigenous women, unhoused women, women of color, women identifying as queer, neurodivergent, differently-abled, etc.), and how to bring more equity and inclusion of diverse, intersectional women into the tech field. Participants included thought leaders from Adobe, Verizon, Salesforce, Dropbox, Treehouse, Pluralsight, Fidelity, and more.

More details of our research and meeting notes are coming soon.

In the meantime, you can join the tribe of other communities I’ve cofounded here.
