A weekly dose of inspirational stories about women in tech
Each issue will include stories about women in tech who are doing amazing and inspiring work. It will also include tips, advice and resources on coding for those who are just getting started.


 The launch of Diversify Tech on Product Hunt went way better than I expected. Thank you all so much for coming out to support the initiative!

 There's been a lot of discussion on speaking engagements this week. Smashing Magazine brought up speakers fees and the broken culture within commercial events. Jenny Shen talked about her year as a speaker from the point of view of a self-employed, women and person of color.

 I was really disappointed to hear about the microaggressions, racism, and exclusion happening at Girl Develop It. If you haven't yet, listen to Shanise share her experience with the organization on the #causeascene podcast.

As always, I'd love to hear about what you are working on and any feedback about the newsletter. Feel free to reply and let me know what you think!

Words of Wisdom: Advice from Women in Tech 🙏

“When I started coding a year ago, I did 20-30 min at a time, and that was an accomplishment. As I fell in love with coding, I overcame the impossible and found 2-4 hours a day to code. We all start somewhere. Don’t let someone else’s reality affect yours.” Bekah Hawrot Weigel, Coach at Moms Can: Code
