Why the Lesbians Who Tech Summit is Important
Since 2014, the Lesbians Who Tech Summit has been the world’s largest gathering of LGBTQ women in tech (and their allies). The summit is a 4-day event that includes speakers, workshops, networking events, and parties. This year’s summit will take place in San Francisco from February 28-March 3.
The Lesbians Who Tech Summit is important for several reasons. First, it provides a much-needed community for LGBTQ women in tech. The tech industry is notoriously male-dominated, and the LGBTQ community is often excluded from mainstream society. The summit offers a safe space for LGBTQ women to connect with each other and discuss the unique challenges they face.
Second, the summit is an important venue for promoting diversity in tech. The event includes workshops on how to create inclusive workplaces, how to be an effective ally to marginalized communities, and how to be a successful entrepreneur as a member of the LGBTQ community. By promoting diversity and inclusion, the Lesbians Who Tech Summit is helping to make the tech industry more equitable for everyone.
Finally, the summit is a great opportunity to network and build relationships with other LGBTQ women in tech. The event includes speed networking sessions, meetups, and parties specifically designed for networking. Attendees can also connect with each other through the Lesbians Who Tech app before and after the event. The Lesbians Who Tech Summit is an important gathering for LGBTQ women in tech because it provides a community, promotes diversity, and offers opportunities to network and build relationships.
The Importance of LGBTQ Representation in Technology
In recent years, there has been a push to increase representation of LGBTQ people in all facets of society, including the tech industry. Lesbians Who Tech is one of the biggest events of the year for LGBTQ women in technology, and it provides a much-needed platform for queer women to network and connect with other like-minded professionals.
Technology is one of the most rapidly evolving industries in the world, and it is essential that all voices are represented in its development. For too long, the LGBTQ community has been underrepresented in the tech industry, and Lesbians Who Tech is working to change that. The event provides a safe and welcoming space for queer women to connect with each other and share their experiences and expertise.
Lesbians Who Tech 2019 is shaping up to be one of the biggest and most impactful events yet, with an expected attendance of over 5,000 queer women from all over the world. If you’re an LGBTQ woman in technology, this is an event you won’t want to miss.

In 2019, Lesbians Who Tech will be celebrating its 10th anniversary. Founded in 2007, Lesbians Who Tech is the largest LGBTQ technology organization in the world, with over 50,000 queer women in its network across 40 countries.
Each year, the organization hosts a large-scale summit that brings together lesbian and bisexual women from all corners of the tech industry for three days of panels, workshops, and networking. This year’s event will take place October 10-13 in San Francisco.
The theme of this year’s summit is ‘The Future of Lesbians Who Tech,’ and attendees can expect to hear from some of the most inspiring and influential queer women working in technology today. The lineup includes Apple’s vice president of environment, policy, and social initiatives Lisa Jackson; GitHub’s chief operating officer Erica Brescia; Basecamp co-founder and CEO Jason Fried; and slack Technologies chief people officer Libby Schaefer.
