Women Impact Tech
San Francisco | March 5, 2019
On March 5, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency, 600+ top female engineers were able to network with the top tech companies who are committed to inclusion and innovation in San Francisco. Through panels, keynotes and presentations, companies and attendees alike were able to engage in meaningful and actionable conversation surrounding the past and future impact of women in tech.
In San Francisco, Women Impact Tech partnered with 50+ top tech companies to celebrate diversity, inclusion, and female equality in tech
I found the company presentations and panels super useful to learn about new technologies and products out in the market. The panels were a great way to learn best practices about how different leaders are trying to make a change in their organizations.
I enjoyed the panels and sessions I attended and got to learn from other experienced engineers about interesting challenges - technical and other. I got the opportunity to meet with very interesting companies I wasn't familiar with before meeting them at the conference and had the chance to set up interviews with them.
Loved the 1:1 interaction that we had leading up to the event. The quality of candidates was great. Will definitely want to attend future ones!
This introductory panel set the stage for the day by defining the purpose of this event. Led by Salem Kimbal, the discussion explored the dynamic Boston tech scene, the women who are leading the efforts of creating space for the community to succeed, and why it is so important for women to make a collective impact.
Moderated by Ruth Bram, this panel highlighted individual narratives of women who have made a significant impact on themselves, those around them, and the cutting-edge technology they work with every day. Their stories offered advice and tangible tools to help carve out impactful careers.
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. This panel highlighted what companies are doing to curate an engaging and inclusive culture.
