The 2014 conference is the third annual event. Our mission is to encourage women to pursue and build successful careers in computing and technology by improving their educational experience and engagement with industry leaders. With less than 30% of STEM jobs filled by women, the industry is lacking full representation of the world’s views. This lack of diversity inhibits industry’s innovation potential. Our effort recognizes and empowers women who are part of the computing industry and celebrates all who are supporters of them.

If you are the following, then you would want to come:

  • College professionals
  • industry leaders
  • Job seekers
  • STEM/Technology leaders
  • Thought leaders
