Women Level Up
Diversity in Tech: Women Level Up is a meetup aimed at empowering software engineers and web developers who identify as female, non-binary, and/or are from underrepresented backgrounds, through education, networking, and mentorship. While there is a plethora of amazing tech meetups available, we noticed a need for something geared towards people who identify as mid-level or have some experience already working as a programmer.
Maybe you graduated from a bootcamp a few years ago and have already had a couple jobs. Maybe you’ve been junior awhile and want to be mid-level. Maybe you’re mid-level and want to be senior. Maybe you want to be the next team lead. We want to help you get there! We intend to build out the technical component of our meetup to really challenge you and level up your skills.

The Life and Times of a Square Peg: Navigating a Culture that isn’t Yoursmore_vert
Mannah Kallon || Software Engineer, Stitch Fix
I am a middle-aged Black man and I'm willing to bet that you are not.
Feeling like I don’t quite fit in has given me a unique perspective on tech, community, and the future of what it means to be an engineer. Let's take this opportunity to explore identity, culture and how we might shed some light on our blind spots.
Get Hooked on React Hooksmore_vert
