On May 2, 2019 at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle, 400+ top female engineers were able to network with top tech companies who are committed to inclusion and innovation. 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.
Women Impact Tech partnered with the Seattle's top tech companies to celebrate diversity, inclusion, and female equality in tech
I enjoyed the diverse type of presentation, mixing panels with technical and career focused talks. It was amazing to meet so many inspiring women in the industry.
I loved the connection between networking and celebrating diversity. The extra time dedicated each session to network was great. I loved the pace of the day.
I really enjoyed networking with the engineering attendees, especially when I was able to learn more about their tech stacks, interests and how they could potentially fit into our company structure.
This introductory panel set the stage for the day by defining the purpose of this event. The discussion explored the dynamic Seattle 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.
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.
