The nonprofit I founded to help women and non-binary adults with low incomes make it into tech, +Techtonica Org, is having a fundraiser brunch and auction on Saturday, October 13th at GitHub's San Francisco office! There'll be delicious food, fun and useful auction items, entertainment provided by Super Famous Mike, and updates on how our participants are doing and how we're getting ready for another cohort in January. Feel free to buy a ticket on the event page.

**OR . . . **

We depend on sponsors for all our program costs, stipends, and job placements and are working to commit twelve new sponsors by October 19th. People at companies with offices in the Bay Area: if you can connect me with a D&I professional, engineering hiring manager, or other decision-maker at your company and advocate for involvement, I'll give you a free ticket to the fundraiser (while supplies last)! My email is michelleglauser@techtonica.org.

Hope to see you there!

My Breathing Thing
For the last year and a half, I've dealt with what I call a "breathing thing." It started around the time I did the Techtonica crowdfunding campaign, and it's never gone totally away or been explained by the doctors I've seen. Basically, sometimes I can't g...

Passion Fruit Yogurt
On my birthday, I invited friends to meet me at Straw, a restaurant that was donating 10% of dine-in sales to Techtonica. Although I was perfectly happy to have people be there or donate to the Facebook fundraiser I'd started, one friend I am always so impr...

Fumbling for Words
Have you ever simultaneously had the breath knocked out of you and the pain of the world knocked into you? That somewhat explains what happened to me last November. Despite the leaps of progress for women after centuries of denial of opportunities, and afte...

If you know of any underrepresented people in your communities who would be eligible and interested in transitioning into a tech career but they're unable to afford it, please tell them about Techtonica's apprenticeship program!

#ImWithHer
When I was in elementary school, I made friends with an older woman in my neighborhood. Pat had a cute little dog named Goochie, her house was full of curiosities that any young child would marvel at, she would happily give you one of the amazing-smelling r...
