2019 LadyCoders: What You Need to Know

Screen Shot 2018 10 02 At 8.01.58 Am

This April, LadyCoders is going bigger and better than ever before!

For the past few years, Equili has convened hundreds of professionals to build community and connect. Through mentorship, events and workshops, we create the space for underrepresented and underutilized groups in technology to develop and grow in their careers. We’re excited to announce the return of the annual LadyCoders Conference, which is designed to empower women technologists with the skills, support, and inspiration we need to trailblaze the path forward in tech. At last year’s LadyCoders, we concluded the conference with a powerhouse panel of senior technologists who shared advice on leading the path forward in our careers. The panel insights resonated so much with us that we’ve decided to make it this year’s theme: The Path Forward.

Invest in your career by joining us at the 2019 LadyCoders Conference. You’ll be joined by hundreds of other women who are plotting and planning the path forward in their careers, just like you.
