Prepare for an afternoon & evening of thought leadership, workshops, & networking with & among the leading female minds & decision makers across the tech ecosystem. This is a different kind of conference. No one ever seems to have time for anything, let alone day-long conferences. We’re not throwing this conference to make money (it’s FREE for all attendees); we’re throwing it to help connect the best of the tech ecosystem for a fun, useful and actually productive day.
