LGBTQ in Technology is a free community for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, gender-non-conforming, and queer people working in the technology field.
The community has a Slack group where members get to know each other and share tech content. A basic rule of the group is to identify yourself as a member of the LGBTQ+ community and respect others. It's also important to be discrete and keep the information shared on Slack there unless somebody specifies that it can be shared.
On the one hand, the community's Slack group includes a channel to post job offers. These contain not only the job title, but also a job description, the salary range, the company culture, and a way to contact the company regarding the job.
On the other hand, the LGBTQ in Technology Slack group also opens spaces for diverse subcultures. For example, there are exclusive channels for trans, bisexuals, agenders, etc. Members must respect these subcultures and participate in channels they feel identified with.
Lastly, all members have access to three general channels: announcements, introductions, and general chat. Joining the rest of the channels is up to you, and they can vary according to your identity and preferences.
