Tomorrow, 40 Workday employees will attend the Lesbians Who Tech + Allies Summit in San Francisco. This four-day networking event brings together more than 2,200 LGBTQ women and their allies for inspiring talks about the impact of technology, a career fair, hackathon, social events, and more.
Considering this event draws people from around the world, I know many of us here at Workday feel real pride in having such a strong presence. If you’re a member of an underrepresented group such as LGBTQ, it’s so important to be able to participate in events that bring together members of your community, as well as friends, family members, and coworkers who support you. You’re surrounded by your people—they get you, and you can feel comfortable being your authentic self.
That’s an extension of why Workday chose to sponsor Lesbians Who Tech + Allies. We want our employees—and any potential employees at the event—to know we offer a culture at Workday where everyone can be comfortable being who they are.
