We're almost all women! As a female founder and member of the tech community for 10+ years, I am very involved in advocating for equality, active in several women in tech groups (I recently led a public speaking training for one). Our whole team (including the three men we work with - one full time (my CTO/cofounder) and two part time) boycotted the office for International Women's day as a sign of solidarity. Sarah has "Smash the Patriarchy" pens and Angela mentors a girl through a tech inclusion program. We're also very supportive of working parents.
