Our Community

We believe that fostering a safe, supportive, diverse community is crucial in our work fighting for gender equality in tech. In tech’s rapidly growing landscape, it is critical that all people are included, regardless of their gender identity.

As ChickTech and ACT-W work to create a movement that includes all people, diversity, equity, and inclusivity are extremely important. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for our staff, volunteers, and program participants.

Our Code of Conduct helps us ensure that ACT-W events and conferences feel safe and positive for all. This Code of Conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
