In their own words
Welcome to this group! I'm Marie from girlknowstech.com! I created this group to have a community where women can discuss and help each other! We are not many, so let's help each other! Feel free to invite your friends who are studying, pursuing careers in technology, learning to code, etc. Everyone who identifies themselves as a woman are welcome! -Marie

Women in TechnologyOur group is a safe, confidential space for women who work in technology to chat and support each other. Please consider joining us whether you are new to the tech industry or you are a long-time practitioner. Not a programmer? That’s fine! Our group does not exclude people who work in technical writing, software testing and QA, graphic design, user experience, project management, customer support, or other areas that are sometimes invisible in the discourse on women in tech.
Lesbians Who Tech MontrealLesbians Who tech is committed to convening queer women in technology (and our allies) in a vibrant and inclusive community. We work together to promote the visibility and inclusion of women, LGBTQ people, and people from other backgrounds under-represented in technology. If you work to move this mission forward, we want you on our team. Nobody ‘has to be’ a lesbian to be in this community. We use the term to honour those who crossed a firewall with it. Lesbians Who Tech s’engage à offrir un environnement dynamique et inclusif aux femmes queer en technologie (et leurs alliés). Nous travaillons ensemble à promouvoir la visibilité et l’inclusion des femmes, des personnes LGBTQ, ainsi que de ceux et celles qui sont sous-représentés dans le domaine des technologies. Si vous avancez dans le même sens que nous, nous vous voulons dans notre équipe. Il n’est donc pas nécessaire d’être lesbienne pour joindre la communauté Lesbians Who Tech. Le terme Lesbienne est utilisé pour honorer les femmes qui ont défoncé le plafond de verre et s’identifient comme tel.
