SheSharp Community Day

from till

Kick off the new year by joining us for our first-ever SheSharp Community Day, a mini-summit dedicated to bringing together our members and allies to showcase the accomplishments of women in tech.

We'll be featuring 2 tracks of speaker series, in one packed afternoon:

  • HerStory, our "fireside chat" format featuring the lives and journeys of prominent women in the industry.
  • A technical track, featuring more technical topics such as ethical AI and best practices with Git.

On January 22, 2021, we welcome everyone to join us in what is sure to be a great afternoon of laughing and learning.

Registration is free of charge and the sessions will be streamed on this website.
