Women in Drupal

Let’s connect and spend some time with fellow women in Drupal!

This year, Women in Drupal will take place during and after the "Networking Reception". 

Baddý Sonja Breidert (CEO and Co-Founder of 1xINTERNET) and Lenny Moskalyk (Delivery Manager at Open Social) will introduce the event on Hopin Main Stage. They will share their experience as women in Tech: what were their biggest achievements, which obstacles they may have faced, etc. Special guests will join them on the virtual stage. Our Sponsors Acquia and Liip will join the discussion

Several breakout sessions will be created on Zoom for participants to break the ice, discuss and e-meet.

Who should attend? Anyone who identifies as a woman is welcomed. Our goal is to foster inclusivity and embrace the involvement of individuals across the gender spectrum.

We hope to see you there!
