We’re making great strides.
Kansas City is home to many fantastic technology user groups offering great content. However, many of these groups are very male dominated, and it can be intimidating joining a highly technical meetup group for the first time, especially as a minority.
Strength in Numbers
You’re in good company.
This is why Kansas City Women in Technology has worked with meetup organizers throughout the city to create pre-meetups, which are essentially an “early arrival time” for women to meet other women interested in attending a particular event. These pre-meetups are staffed with ambassadors who are friendly faces to seek out, who will introduce you to other participants.
