Write Speak Code

We're on a mission to promote the visibility and leadership of technologists with marginalized genders through peer-led professional development.

Write/Speak/Code is a 501c3, tax-exempt non-profit that hosts an annual conference and meetup events designed to help you fully own your expertise through writing, speaking, and open source.

Our community is open to and our content is designed for people whose gender or gender history is marginalized within tech.

We define those gender groups as:

  • All women technologists (trans, non-binary, and cis)
  • All trans technologists (trans women, trans men, and trans non-binary folks)
  • All non-binary technologists (including GNC, gender-fluid, genderqueer, agender folks, etc)

We want to equip people from these groups to overcome both the internal and external effects of that marginalization by identifying, expanding, and sharing their expertise with the support of an engaged peer network.
