Inclusion and Diversity are important to us. That’s why we created the (she)DF community. It’s still young and evolving, but currently, we are a network of over 88 women on LinkedIn. We are so excited by the growth in membership, especially, as this initiative just launched this year in 2020.
We saw the opportunity to create a group for women hosted by the female leadership of the CDF. The group is currently functioning as a community board where members can share events, blogs, jobs, and a fun meme or two. Diversity and inclusion are a priority at CDF and we hope to take (she)DF to the next level in 2021. We are launching a quarterly luncheon for the ladies of the (she)DF and if vaccines permit we might be able to do a few of these at an industry event in person in late 2021. If you identify as a woman in tech we encourage you to join our network of women!
