CALL FOR SPEAKERS


Apply to Speak at One of Our Community Sessions – Deadline to Apply is June 18

This year’s event will be virtual and focus on the theme “For Women | For All: How investing in women in tech benefits everyone.” Over two days, we’ll explore the ways that supporting women in tech improves not only opportunities for women but also for the industry overall.

We want to highlight our own tech community through what we’re calling “Community Sessions.” Do you have expertise and passion in emerging technologies that you can share with our audience? Do you have a presentation related to why we should invest more in women in tech? Are you an expert on supporting women or diverse populations in the workplace? Share your experience and knowledge with this year’s WIT attendees!
