Hi friend,

As we wrap up Pride Month, we wanted to share some of the LGBTQ+ communities for people in tech. Check out these awesome organizations below to see how you can get involved!

  • Lesbians Who Tech & Allies is the largest LGBTQ+ technology community in the world – committed to visibility, intersectionality, and changing the face of technology.

  • Out in Tech unites the LGBTQ community by creating opportunities for members to advance their careers, grow their networks, and leverage tech for social change.

  • TransTech is an incubator for LGBTQ+ talent with a focus on economically empowering the transgender people in their community.

  • LGBTQ+ Remotely‘s mission is to help democratize access to remote work opportunities for the LGBTQ+ community including those who may not identify with the rainbow family but simply want to work for a company who values diversity, inclusion and belonging in their work environment.

  • The LGBTQ+ in Technology Slack is a space for LGBTQ people in technology to chat and support each other.

All my best,

Marta Oddone,

Mentorship Program Update

We had a great turnout for our June Mentorship Circle event in Charlotte & Raleigh! Thank you to our guest speaker of Accrue Partners, Carmen Thomas, who led a workshop on sprucing up your LinkedIn profile and how to use it effectively for your job search or personal branding.

Reminder to our mentorship members that there will be no session in July and we will resume our monthly meetings in August.

In the meantime, check out some photos and a recap of the event here. And if you’re interested in joining our Mentorship Program to be a part of future events like these, you can still apply!
