THE MEMO:  LIFE OR DEATH? OUT IN TECH ARE HELPING PEOPLE IN THE WORST PLACES TO BE LGBTQ+

"More than 70 countries still have discriminatory laws in place against homosexual acts, and this number would be even bigger if it included nations like Russia (which enforces a federal law “for the Purpose of Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values”)."

INCLUSION TECH:  CONNECTING COMMUNITIES THROUGH CODE

The other eight organizations benefitting from the event hail from Belize, Botswana, Brazil, China, the Nile Valley (Egypt/Sudan), Pakistan, Russia, and Zimbabwe. The Out in Tech team is hoping that this will be the first of a series of events geared at supporting these extraordinary grassroots organizations, and at providing an opportunity for its members to contribute to the fight towards equality.
