Events

Any woman or nonbinary person interested in technology, studying technology or working in technology is welcome at ALL of our events.

Men are welcome at most of our events, but not all; occasionally, we host events that are specifically for women and nonbinary folks. (See individual event descriptions for details.) Unsure if it's appropriate for you to attend? Shoot us an email at admin@madisonwomen.tech and double-check (we're very nice ❤️).

Whenever possible, our events are hybrid (both in-person and accessible via Zoom).
