PyLadies

Because diversity isn't supplementary, it's foundational.

The PyLadies segment at this year's PyCon DE & PyData Berlin conference is a collaboration with the PySV (Python Software Verband e.V.) to foment diversity, inclusion, and belonging within the tech community. PyLadies is a global volunteer organization dedicated to supporting underestimated and underrepresented genders in tech, including women, non-binary, and trans people, encouraging their active participation and leadership within the Python open-source ecosystem. We aim to offer a safe, welcoming environment for all skill levels to learn, share, grow, and become today's and tomorrow's leaders.

We focus on uplifting women and gender-underrepresented groups. For those who do not identify with these groups, we appreciate your active allyship in recognizing and using your privileges to raise opaqued voices and foster an inclusive environment by ensuring equitable participation in discussions and events.

This is a collective organization from PyLadies Germany chapters: Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Südwest (Manheim, Heidelberg, Heilbronn, Stuttgart, and Karlsruhe) with PySV.
