Lesbians Who Tech & Allies + The include Crew

As this year’s Pride Month comes to an end, we take a look back at one of the highlights for include — sponsoring the Lesbians Who Tech & Allies (Not IRL) Pride Summit as their exclusive hiring platform.

It was so fulfilling to be a part of the largest LGBTQ+ technology event in history. This event brought together over 20,000 LGBTQ women, non-binary and trans folks, and allies from around the world.

For five days, the community came together to discuss critical social justice issues while learning from and teaching one another, engaging in important dialogue, and having a lot of fun.
