we are a group of female, intersex, non-binary, trans and agender Hackers, called Haecksen¹, mostly from German speaking areas. Our common goal is a more diverse tech scene. We are a part of the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) and our main communication channel is a mailing list. We are now more than 600 people, mostly from German speaking areas. We currently have local groups in e.g. Stuttgart, Hamburg, Hannover, Karlsruhe, Leibzig, Göttingen and Berlin and we meet regularly at bigger CCC events and at our (at least) annual “geekends”. You can get in touch with us by writing to info@haecksen.org.

¹ our group name “Haecksen” is pronounced the same way as the German word for witches: “Hexen”.
