Hello! I’m Sage Sharp, the CEO of Otter Tech. I use they/them pronouns. I care deeply about increasing inclusion and safety in events and communities. I love sharing knowledge, and creating interactive workshops.
I founded Otter Tech in 2016, after working for 10+ years as an open source software developer. I burned out of the technical industry due to sexism and the toxic environment of the online community I was working with. It’s an unfortunately common experience for people from marginalized groups.
I took those negative experiences and used them to create training to help communities be more inclusive and safe. My passion is in helping leaders create cultural change and take action to challenge biases.
I work with in-person event organizers, online event organizers, online communities, boards of directors, and executives.
Since 2016, I have trained leaders from many communities. Here is a list of some of the communities I’ve trained:
