LAS VEGAS - March 5, 2021 - PRLog -- Celebrate women's achievements in technology. The International Women's Day (IWD) Challenge Event hosted by The Live Coders will be streamed live on Twitch to raise awareness about challenges they face. Anyone who identifies as a woman was invited to apply to share a challenge they've overcome in technology. Technical and human skills will be covered with sessions like, "Basics of Hardware Building with Arduino" from Sarah Withee, and "From Panic Attacks to Public Speaking - My Journey" from Stacy Cashmore.

The event will be live-streamed from team's channel: https://Twitch.tv/livecoders. Speakers are scheduled to present 5:00am EST - 3:00pm EST (10:00GMT - 20:00GMT) and span multiple time zones and continents. Schedule: https://livecoders.dev/conference.

The Live Coders partners with non-profit organization's, donating to the charity, as well as creating a fundraising account during the event so viewers may contribute. They have chosen Trans Lifeline (https://translifeline.org) for this event.

"Our work is important because we are a community-based solution to mental health -- we are the only service in North America that has a Hotline and Microgrants program staffed by, and for, trans people." said Bri Barnett, Director of Advancement for Trans Lifeline. "Offering free virtual events such as this one is very important, it provides a space for people to connect and form bonds. The free price also means it's more accessible to marginalized groups like trans people who are denied economic opportunities. I do this work because we are demonstrating how to create community-based healthcare that's divested from police and carceral systems. We're fundamentally transforming how trans people receive care across North America."
