PyLadies is an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Our mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events and social gatherings.

PyLadies also aims to provide a friendly support network for women and a bridge to the larger Python world. Anyone with an interest in Python is encouraged to participate!

If you are interested in starting a local PyLadies group, have a look through our kit on GitHub, and feel free to ask us any questions.

PyLadies is under the financial enclave of the Python Software Foundation. Any donation made to PyLadies is tax-deductible, and will go towards helping women attend Python and Open Source conferences, as well as help broaden its diversity outreach efforts.
