The Women in Tech Summit is a series of events that inspire, educate and connect women in the technology industry. Our mission is to support the community of women currently working in technology and to help pave the way for women and young women who want to enter the industry.
The Women in Tech Summit provides attendees with a unique combination of hands-on tech workshops; discussions about trending topics in technology; information on thriving through tech career phases and facets; and lasting connections with other women working on both the business and technical sides of technology. The Women in Tech Summit knows that working in tech is not just about coding but about all aspects of careers in technology. The conference brings together women in many different types of careers in tech and at every level from students to senior executives.
All profits generated from each event support the non-profit TechGirlz.org and its ongoing mission to inspire middle school girls to explore the possibilities of technology to empower their future careers. TechGirlz is accomplishing its mission through the creation of free, fun, interactive “TechShopz” led by industry professionals, leaders and students. TechGirlz shares their free workshop curriculum with companies, organizations, schools and community groups so they can inspire girls around the world with technology.
