"Hi, I'm the Leanne Pittsford, the founder of Lesbians Who Tech.
Just over a year ago, we started doing Lesbians Who Tech happy hours, to bring together queer women across the tech industry. It quickly grew to over 3,000 people in 14 cities worldwide.
As the next step, we hosted the Lesbians Who Tech Summit in San Francisco, a few weeks ago. It was a completely amazing event, with 800 queer women, incredible speakers, a hackathon for social good, and weekend events like a bike ride and brunch.
Even though about 25% of our attendees came in from out of town, we know San Francisco is still pretty far."
