The Montreal chapter of Lesbians Who Tech, a community organization of queer women in and around tech (and those who love them), is holding its 3rd event of the season, exploring how technology can break barriers for social change. Commun-IT’s own Parker Mah will be on hand to speak about the work of Commun-IT around community-based technology.
As a community, Lesbians Who Tech hopes to help queer women in the tech workforce be more visible to each other, and to gain visibility for women, lesbians and members of the LGBTQ community. Only 1 out of 15 STEM workers are women, and Lesbians Who Tech plays an essential role in the fight for equal representation in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields, and a more woman-friendly, queer-friendly world. Lesbians Who Tech also connects to LGBTQ and women’s organizations who are doing community work that champions the advancement of women, queer people and their allies.
