Dear [Supervisor’s Name],

I would like to request a day off to attend Women Impact Tech on March 5th, 2020. This event is dedicated to celebrating innovation and inclusion and will bring together the top 1,000 female engineers along with the most advanced companies in San Francisco. Together we will celebrate our strides and grow our impact.

Women Impact Tech is a premier collaborative initiative featuring thought-provoking group panels, executive keynote speakers, and significant networking events.  As an attendee, I will have the opportunity to network with peers, engage in meaningful dialogue with key industry leaders, and contribute to the growing Women in Technology community in San Francisco.

The Women Impact Tech San Francisco agenda will be out soon.  Some of the companies that are attending this year include Netflix, LinkedIn, Tesla, Twitter and Pinterest. This year’s event includes keynote speakers:

·         Vijaya Kaza, Chief Security Officer and Head of Trust Engineering & Data Science at Airbnb

·         Alana Karen, Director, Search Platforms at Google

Attendance is free for all attendees, and it promises to be an extraordinary event.  As a result of attending this event, I intend to strengthen my skills in:

Goal 1:

Goal 2:

Goal 3:

I am confident that my attendance at Women Impact Tech San Francisco will greatly benefit my work at [Company].  After attending, I would love to share the takeaways with my teammates, including those that we could implement in our current roles at [Company].
