Wonder Women Tech (WWT) is a conference franchise and series of educational programming and initiatives that highlights, educates, and celebrates women and diversity in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) innovation and entrepreneurialism. Their conferences and programming offer a variety of speakers, panel discussions, coding classes, community inclusion activities and other dynamic initiatives geared towards empowering women and girls.
They will explore areas in:
Innovations in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math, Startups/Startup Culture, Female Founders, Diversity and Inclusion, Social Innovation, Aerospace, Bioengineering, Engineering, Eco-Tech, Robotics, Mathematics, Leadership, Closing the Gender Gap, Pioneers in Tech, Space exploration, Future of Travel, Mobility, Automotive Innovation, The Intersection between Arts and STEM, Healthcare technology, Sports technology, and more.
Our mission is to ‘disrupt the conference model’ and create a shift in diversity and inclusion within STEAM industries by offering revolutionary content and impactful discussions that will further the development of women, girls and diversity as innovators.
Our conferences will support and facilitate a community driven Wonder Women Tech Week leading up to the Wonder Women Tech Conference, where strategic partners can host their own satellite events during WWT week.
Inclusivity is one of their primary drivers and we intend to offer as many engagement opportunities to as many socioeconomically disparate audiences as possible. Their Junior Innovation Camp/Wonder Girls Camp is provided at no cost to participants, and engages students ages 8 to 12 and ages 13 to 17 years old with courses that teach coding, film making, game development, DIY projects and age appropriate entrepreneurship.
Their WWT Immersion program pairs our Sponsors and Partners with their attendees and online community network with mentorship and ‘Job Shadow’ opportunities. The Wonder Women Tech Ambassador program creates a cross promotional partnership and engagement platform between their strategic partners and the WWT community. Their WWT Learning Center within their conferences teaches women and students seeking to either change careers or learn a new skill, how to code and/or build games. They offer a WWT Career Fair which allows conference attendees and registered guests to attend a career fair which will feature booths from our sponsor/partners who are actively looking for talent in STEAM, and provide an opportunity for attendees to secure opportunities for job placement and internships.
They also partner with cities like Long Beach, Los Angeles, and universities like Arizona State University and other organizations to offer Wonder Women Hacks and Hacks 4 Humanity hackathon programming, which allows developers, visionaries, technologists, UX designers and creatives to build mobile apps that will impact women and girls, or contribute to the Social Good.
Our 2016 conference theme is #WeArePioneers and they will explore the next frontier in Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, Math and Innovation and highlight the women who have paved the way for future generations in STEAM! Primary programming will occur on July 16th & 17th from 9AM to 5PM at the Long Beach Convention Center. They will host conference opening and closing parties during the evenings of July 15th & 17th (Venue and Times TBA). The City of Long Beach has made a commitment to sponsor the Wonder Women Tech Conference for the next three years, 2016 through 2018 and we look forward to expanding our vision Internationally!
