LGBTQ+ in Technology Meetup v0.0.1

Welcome to the first KW LGBTQ+ in Technology Meetup organized by

While at JSConf a few years ago I found a greater LGBTQ+ community and I tapped into a network of folks who helped me feel as if wasn't alone. I promised myself I would do something to bring that feeling to more LGBTQ+ folks here in Waterloo Region and to foster a local community where we can support and learn from one another.

Come connect with the local LGBTQ+ community in technology and help us make and take a space.
