It will host more than 550 attendees, ranging from students to executives from industry, academia and nonprofit organizations.

This year’s keynote speakers will be Laila Ali, entrepreneur, athlete and advocate for equality; and Megan Smith, the first female chief technology officer for the United States. Additional breakout sessions will showcase thought-provoking speakers on the most pressing topics for women in technology. Sessions will be broken down into five tracks based on technical and seniority level including:

  • Emerging Leadership – for the professional who would like to focus on developing their personal brand and gaining insight into their individual leadership style
  • Executive Leadership – for the more seasoned professional who is already in the managerial track and wanting to advance to the next leadership level
  • Technical – for professionals interested in tools to advance their careers
  • VP+ Breakout (Invite only) – content designed specifically for VPs and above
  • Diversity & Inclusion – opportunity to learn and share best D&I practices
