11th Annual PyLadies Auction

We’re getting excited for the return of the PyLadies Auction at PyCon 2022!

Since this will be the first in-person live auction since 2019, we’re looking forward to seeing our supportive regulars and our new friends!

If you have yet to attend a PyLadies Auction at previous PyCons, don’t miss out this year. Help raise money for PyLadies, an international mentorship group that focuses on helping more women become active participants and leads within the PyCon open source community.

Not only will your donations make a huge impact, but you will also have a great evening with lots of laughter, friendly competition, and unique, one-of-a-kind donations.

For last year’s virtual event with 21 items auctioned off, PyLadies raised $19K to support future PyCon US travel grants. The previous in-person auction in 2019, over $44K was raised from 58 items auctioned. Let’s outdo ourselves this year!
