Women Who Code DC is seeking a trio of new directors to lead programming and partnerships.

According to Network Director Lauren Jacobson, the volunteer roles will complete a five-member leadership team for the local chapter of the nonprofit that seeks to empower women to seek out careers in tech. The openings for the roles come as current leaders are moving on, and the chapter is seeking to expand.

“We’re looking for people that are interested in helping us deliver programming and supporting our mission to empower women in tech,” Jacobson said. Experience running events is a plus, as well as enthusiasm to be an ambassador to the community, Jacobson said.

Founded in 2014, Women Who Code DC runs events including tech talks around specific languages, lab nights and networking events. The meetup group has more than 8,000 members, and runs multiple events each week.

Here’s info on the open roles, according to Women Who Code DC:

Tech Director

This role involves running tech talks and workshops that focus on current and emerging technology.

Language Labs Director

This role involves leading groups that focus on specific programming languages and disciplines, such as the Front End Lab Group and Python Lab Group. The organization wants to offer a wider range of these more specific offerings.

Partnerships Director

With current director Su Kim set to relocate from D.C., the organization is seeking a director to lead the work of finding partners and booking events.
