The story of Fleurix
Fleurix exists to support women+ in technology by providing affordable and accessible community-driven events. Through thoughtful planning and execution, we seek to grow and diversify the technology sector in Charlotte and beyond.
How? By creating an inclusive, beginner-friendly community and celebrating our differences as features, not bugs. Moms, career-changers, non-binary folks, people of color, creatives, educators, and others--there is a place for you in tech, and we want to see you thrive.
When we held our first event in 2019, we were blown away by how the community showed up. Seeing over 400 local women+ technologists, from high school students to tech veterans, together in one space was immensely impactful. In an industry where it is easy to feel like an "other", we understand the importance of connection and strive to keep it at the forefront of all events.
All are welcome at our events as long as respectful conduct is upheld. Yes, men, that includes you! Educating and partnering with allies is crucial to the success of our mission.
In efforts to remove barriers to entry, our ticket prices are well below the standard for conferences and we offer a large number of scholarships. Financial accessibility will always be a core part of our operations.
Thank you for being part of our community. Let's help women+ flourish in tech, together.
