More than 1,500 LGBTQ women and allies across all areas of technology will come together in San Francisco for the Lesbians Who Tech Summit this month. This is the only event focused on increasing visibility and tech participation in two historically underrepresented communities: the women’s and queer communities. In the summer of 2015, O3 World Developer Courtney Wilburn was named one of the White House’s LGBTQ Tech & Innovation Fellows – a prestigious group of innovative, talented, and influential technologists, designers, product specialists, and community leaders assembled to help solve some of America’s toughest challenges.
After months of hard work and collaboration, Courtney will present her team’s project, GreenBook App, to the Lesbians Who Tech community via Google Hangout. As lead developer on a project focused on police and law enforcement data, Courtney will explain how their solutions can give communities the opportunity to visualize local law enforcement data and provide people with the opportunity to provide feedback about their interactions with law enforcement. If you can’t attend the summit, follow along with the conversation on February 26 using the hashtag #LWTSummit on Twitter.
