Today is the third annual White House LGBTQ Tech & Innovation Summit and we now know who made the cut.

The White House started accepting applications to the invite-only event in July, which includes everyone from engineers to entrepreneurs to data scientists. The day will consist of discussing the different issues facing the world — gun violence, gender equality, tech inclusion and big data (hey, the White House is also hosting a summit on this in September) — and breaking into teams to think up solutions to those problems.

(If you want an idea of what the summit is like, Philly-based Courtney Wilburn was at last year’s event.)

Here’s the list of people who’ll be repping D.C. at today’s big event:

  • Michael Dumlao, director of brand at Booz Allen Hamilton
  • Erica Irving, front-end web engineer at The Washington Post
  • Elaine Kamlley, front-end developer and outreach at 18F
  • Victoria Massie, race and identities reporter at Vox.com
  • Daniel Morgan, chief data officer at U.S. Department of Transportation
  • Priyanka Oberoi, data scientist at U.S. Department of Commerce
  • Stephanie Tan, VP and head of cybersecurity at OnDeck
  • Alexandra Ulsh, information security engineer of Mapbox
  • Latoya Watson, tech and digital marketing manager at Groundswell.org
  • Joy Whitt, program analyst for D.C.’s Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development
