I also found this one just starting in Zagreb. http://www.ladiesthatux.com/ Regarding scholarships/grants, the Python Software Foundation is open to sponsoring people who would like to attend a conference or organise an event and need some financial aid - especially for under-represented demographics. https://www.python.org/psf/grants/ Cheers! :)

I'm inviting the folks from http://codedoc.co to http://objcgn.com — we'll also screen their documentary. Does it qualify to enter in the list? Also, we have a special code "wwcode" that gives 30% from the Ticket price. Finally, I'm here because you (Anika) were recommended as a potential speaker from @orta :)

We recently founded CodeCats.io a student-run coding initiative. It sits somewhere between workshop and network. I'd be more than delighted to see us added to the list.

Hi, I created and maintain a diversity index "50-DI" of grants, scholarships, travel bursary and/or financial aid offered to women (including those who identify as women in a way that's significant to them) from ALL around the world. I'll add your list there and anyone is free to file a PR for the different conferences and scholarship lists I maintain. Thanks.

Networks: http://www.duchess-france.org/

At the beginning "Java Duchesses France", but in the meantime multi-disciplinary. The young women are highly active in France, in press and on conferences. They also organise "speaker" training sessions for women in IT.
