Transgender people have been involved in tech for a long time, and several industry pioneers have been trans women, including Lynn Conway and Naomi Ceder. But their visibility in this field has been slow to match the rise of the trans movement, even though the numbers in the industry have risen — which is where the inaugural Transform Tech Summit comes in.

Who: A group of transgender and non-binary techies gathered at Salesforce's offices in San Francisco for the summit on Thursday to examine the issues facing trans people in tech and how tech people can help the trans civil rights movement.
