Engineers and Tech Leaders
I loved everything about the event: great hosting and location, great networking opportunities with peers, inspirational panels, keynote speeches, accessibility and diversity of companies.
I met so many like-minded women that I was able to share my experiences with, which hopefully they find helpful in their career. An amazing celebration of diversity and inclusion for females in tech.
The best part of this event was both the quality of talent and venue. The organization of the event was spot on. Everything at the event was perfectly planned, from registration to presentations! Can’t wait to attend next year!

Defining Our Purpose
This introductory panel set the stage for the day by defining the purpose of this event.

Companies play a large role in setting up systems for allowing women to impact the workplace-whether it be hiring the right talent, making space at the table for decision-making, or ensuring that women are at the forefront of up and coming technology.
