It's not too late to get your tickets to Queer Women Who Tech Summit New York, which runs from June 19-22.

Lesbians Who Tech—"a Community of Queer women in or around tech (and the people who love them)"--has hosted a previous summit in San Francisco. This month, though, the first NYC Summit will feature keynotes, panel discussions, and a hackathon, as well as themed brunches, parties, and receptions.

GLAAD's CEO and President Sarah Kate Ellis will be a featured speaker at the event. GLAAD is also one of the Summit's partner organizations.

Along with Sarah Kate, speakers will include J. Bob Alotta (Executive Director, Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice), Kathryn Finney (Managing Director, digitalundivided), Samhita Mukhopadhyay (Former Executive Editor, Feministing.com), Natalia Oberti Noguera (Founder & CEO, Pipeline Fellowship), Leanne Pittsford (Founder, Lesbians Who Tech), Geena Rocero (Founder, GenderProud), and Sara Sperling (Diversity & Inclusion, Facebook).  You can read their bios here.
