PyLadies Mission is to advance a diverse Python Community. This work is done by many volunteers in PyLadies chapters around the world, and here in Germany. And the benefits of this work are often felt far beyond the community itself.
Pyladies Germany currently has four chapters: Berlin, Hamburg, Karlsruhe, and Munich. Each working to support underrepresented people in our community, so they can thrive. They work to create safe spaces for learning and networking.
Join this panel to learn more about how these volunteers and organizers make a difference, what they would like the wider python community to understand, so they could be more effective in their work, and what you could do tomorrow, to help advance this work.
