LGBTQ in Technology

The LGBTQ in Technology Slack is a space for LGBTQ people in technology to chat and support each other. We strive to keep it safe, positive, and confidential.

Who’s invited?

Anybody who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, queer, and those questioning whether they fit into those or any of the many other sub-genres of people who are not generally considered both “straight” and cis.

Friends and allies: we appreciate your support, but this space is for us.

Recruiters: please take note of this policy.

What are the rules?

We have a simple and uncontroversial Code of Conduct.

TL;DR: be nice, and what happens inside generally stays there unless someone specifically says otherwise.

If you're under 18, please let the admins know so we can keep an eye out for you.

Our Culture

We've documented our culture as best we can.

Slack chat spaces are divided into rooms called “channels”, and we have very many. There are three you’ll be in by default:

  • #announcements: occasional announcements, administrator broadcast-only
  • #introductions: welcoming new members
  • #chat: random chat

...and literally hundreds more on various topics. #-too-many-channels is a good place to ask if a channel for a topic exists. All rooms are opt-in except announcements, which is why it is kept low-volume.

How do I join?

Fill out this form. A moderator will send you an invitation. If you have any questions or are having trouble accessing the slack, you can contact an admin.
