The 2018 Call for Speaking Proposals is now open!

We are looking for volunteers to deliver a solo talk, participate on a panel or lead a workshop that falls into one of the following agenda tracks:

Innovate Yourself Track –

The Innovate Yourself track at the Women in Tech Summit provides audience members an opportunity to develop skills and learn from the experience and expertise of other women working in tech. Innovate Yourself sessions focus on topics useful for career growth on both the technical and business sides of technology.

Trends in Technology Track –

The Trends in Technology track provides audience members an opportunity to learn more about a specific technology topic. These sessions should focus on some of the new things happening in and with technology. Attendees should come away from these sessions with an understanding of these trends and their applicability.

Hands-on Workshops –

The hands-on workshops provide audience members with practical experience in a given topic. Workshops should be exercise and/or project based and should provide either an elementary overview or a deep-dive into a particular technology topic. Speakers are encouraged to submit either programming workshop topics or workshops that demonstrate that working in tech is programming and more.
