Where women in tech can talk about whatever we want.
I've been watching Leap grow over the last year, and love seeing its evolution. I've also become legitimate friends w/ a few women that I've met through Leap. I wish this existed years ago, when I first entered the tech scene in San Francisco. Thank you, Cadran!
Diverse topics, great networking opportunity, inspiring demonstrations of women helping women.
There honestly aren't cons. Of course, the community will improve as more members join, which is inevitable given the quality of the forum.
There's a trend in tech that when women start talking about stuff that impacts us, suddenly a storm blows up, usually kicked off by men. It goes from just trying to share a perspective to having to defend ourselves, explain ourselves, etc etc. I've never had to do that in Leap. It's amazing !!!!!!
We can talk about anything we want with others who empathise. Refreshing to speak my mind without having to debate or justify my opinions.
None so far, just hope it keeps growing and gets more global reach.
