The LadyCoders conference is a two and a half day gathering dedicated to empowering women and non-binary technologists to take their tech career to the highest possible levels.
LadyCoders is designed to provide the underrepresented in technology tangible, real-world advice to advance their careers at all stages and overcome the obstacles they face in the tech industry.
Equili (formerly LadyCoders Productions) conceived of, organized, corralled, planned, promoted and delivered this same 2 day career conference from scratch 4 years ago and is bringing it back in 2018.
To help women and non-binary technologists who are on the frontlines of tech’s diversity and inclusion problem thrive in their careers and stay in the industry.
Women leave tech at high rates. The LadyCoders Conference addresses this leaky faucet problem at tech companies and is designed to increase their retention of top diverse talent.
We are actively booking speakers and will make announcements soon. You can check back here or stay up to date through our email newsletters. You can sign-up for the newsletter below. Our current speakers include:
At the past LadyCoders conference speakers included the CTO for the State of Colorado, engineers from Google, Twitter and Spotify as well as the Co-Founder of Girl Develop It and numerous female executives at the top of their field offering tangible advice for improving their careers.

Equili (the organizer) does not believe in charging for attendance. Instead, we strive to remove all barriers to access by asking the tech community to underwrite the registration fees through sponsorship. Women and non-binary technologists tend to be the “only” or one of the few in their departments. This event is designed to be a place where these technologists find their tribe, connect with their community and walk away with knowledge and action to thrive in their careers.

Registration is now open and free for all attendees.
We want this conference to be completely inclusive of everyone, including parents. And let’s face it, finding childcare for an entire weekend sounds daunting. Collab & Play is offering their childcare services for FREE for the entire weekend. You heard us correct. They will be on-site so you can stop in to nurse or check on your kids (ages 3 months – 12 years) throughout the weekend.
LadyCoders, the name of the conference, makes a gender delineation. The conference will not. If you identify as a woman or as non-binary on the date you register we welcome your attendance and look forward to having you. Our mission is to #ChangeTheRatio and help the underrepresented in technology.
Men are welcome to attend as an ally at one of our mentoring sessions. If you would like to be a male ally at the LadyCoders Conference, please sign-up here.
