Why “Brave Stack”?
“All the Women are White, All the Blacks are Men, but Some of Us Are Brave”.
An homage to the scholarly work, this group is for those of us who are brave – black women and femmes. Some of us are tech veterans and some of us are just getting our feet wet, but all of us can create a space where our developers/designers/etc. (at all levels) can exchange knowledge and insight.
Who Should Join?
Black women and femmes who are in the tech industry in some capacity – whether you’re a freelance web developer or a programmer for a major tech firm – who are also interested in building a network with other black women/femmes in tech. Also, if you’re a black woman/femme who’s just getting their feet wet, this group is for you, too.
Do I Need To Be Black?
Yes. The interest is appreciated, but this group will be focusing on creating a space for black women/femmes from across the African diaspora.
Do I Need To Be A Woman/Femme?
Yes. Again, the interest is appreciated, but this group will be focusing on creating a space for women and femmes in tech to network and exchange knowledge and ideas – specifically, those who are black.
Do I Need To Be Cisgender?
No. “Women” refers to all women (both trans and cis). If you identify as a black woman, this means you.
Do I Need To Be A Coder, Developer, Programmer, or Designer?
You should be working in tech, or interested in tech, in some capacity that allows you to participate in conversations regarding the tech world.
