The Live Coders presents "International Women's Day Challenge 2021"

Visit the official website by clicking here.


Women face many challenges in the community and in the workplace. On March 8th, 2021 from 5:00 am EST - 3:00 pm EST (10:00 GMT - 20:00 GMT) The Live Coders will be presenting 10 female speakers who have overcome a challenge (self-imposed or otherwise) in tech. We’re allocating 10 sessions for the tech community to present free educational sessions to the public to raise awareness about the challenges women in tech face.


We will offer a full day, 10 hours of free content, and you won’t need to wake in the middle of the night to participate.


We’re looking for female-identifying presenters to deliver a session about when they have challenged themselves in some way or overcame a challenge in tech. We are hosting live-streamed presentations around human skills and/or using technologies.


The call for content is now OPEN and we will be taking your submissions for content up until February 15th, 2021. Please submit your proposals for sessions on the Sessionize website here.

We look forward to seeing you online in March!

Thank you for your interest in speaking at The Live Coders' International Women's Day Challenge online virtual event. The live broadcast is scheduled for March 8th, 2021.

The event will happen from 5:00 am - 3:00 pm EST (10:00 GMT - 20:00 GMT).


Ten women will be chosen to present educational content live through Twitch. We are looking for 45-minute talks related to a challenge that you have overcome, self-imposed or otherwise. The MC's will have a pre-recorded conversation with speakers about their challenge before the presentation. Please submit topics that will amaze and inspire our tech community!


  1. Code on stream (For example: show us how you solved a coding problem) 
  2. Walk-through some code (For example: A cool, but challenging project you have built)
  3. Or you don't have to code at all! (For example: How you negotiated a raise)


Additionally, please let us know a little bit about yourself and where you have presented before. Include links to videos from other presentations, or other qualifications that we should consider.


Thank you and happy coding!
