Request time off to tune into Women Impact Tech Connect!

Letter:

Dear [Supervisor’s Name],

I would like to request time off to attend a few sessions that are of interest to me at Women Impact Tech Connect throughout the week of June 8th – June 12th. WIT Connect is a free, weeklong virtual conference that will allow me to join 10,000+ experienced women in technology through an interactive platform. 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 Impact Tech community across the country.

This event will allow me to tune into various sessions that appeal me throughout the week including thought-provoking panels, keynote speakers, significant networking opportunities, and invaluable company information sessions.

The WIT Connect agenda will be out soon. Companies that have participated in the past include Airbnb, AWS, Netflix, Lyft, and Google. This year’s virtual event includes the following speakers:

  • Ishita Majumdar, Vice President, Analytics Platform and Products, eBay
  • Kamini Dandapani, Director, Developer Platform, Airbnb
  • Vijaya Kaza, Chief Security Officer & Head of Trust Engineering & Data Science, Airbnb
  • Jenn Lee, Director of Software Development, Audible
  • Seda Unal Calargun, Engineering Manager, Twitter
  • Helen Altshuler, Engineering Manager, Google Maps

 

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:
