Bridging the gender gap in technology must start with a level playing field for professional growth.

Our call to Philly’s women in tech to suggest articles yielded a pitch too good to pass up: Why don’t we make a list of resources for women in tech?

We kept it purposefully broad in the interest of packing it tight. We reached out again for your thoughts, women in tech, and you did not disappoint. From local meetups to books, from websites to podcasts and from mentorship programs to nonprofits, this list is chock full of resources that can help make the average startup a more gender–diverse one.

Yes, it’s about professional development to an extent, but it’s also about community building. Our informal community outreach revealed a need among women in tech for more connection, more advice, more access to resources. And fortunately, as our reporting shows, there’s a healthy dose of that in Philly.

Before we get to the goodies, we want to drop some names of people who helped us compile this list. Thank you for pitching in: Lauren Hallden, Zeina Barr, Sharon Hake, Tiffanie Stanard, Maggie Deptola, Amelia Longo, Adriana Vásquez, Melissa Le, Jen Dionisio, Alisha Miranda, Yuval Yarden and Jessica Cornell. Special shoutout to reporter emeritus Juliana Reyes, who looked closely at women in tech during her tenure as Philly lead reporter.

Here’s the list — in no particular order — but feel free to add yours to the comments section below:
