About Women and Color
Women and Color advocates for speaker diversity at tech-related events in Toronto.
We strive to improve gender and racial representation by highlighting speaker stats of local events on Twitter and building a directory of women and PoC available for speaking opportunities.
You can learn about why this project started as initially outlined in this Medium article.
Want to help?
Here’s how can support Women and Color:
- Share Women and Color within your network as this will create awareness about this initiative
- Ask others who identify as women and PoC to signup to be speakers as this will lead to an even larger diverse pool of talented speakers
- Ask event organizers to contact you through your profile on Women and Color as this will encourage them to use it as their go-to tool for finding and contacting speakers
