This includes (but is not limited to) women, people of color, folks over 50, LGBT, working parents, disabled, etc. The project has two main goals: to show the outside world a more comprehensive picture of people who work in tech, and to bring a bit of attention to folks in the industry whose stories have never been heard, considered or celebrated.
