We believe that society and the technology industry will be better with more women leaders. The ISACA’s Women in Technology Survey found that nearly 90 percent of survey participants stated they had experienced a lack of mentors or female leaders in their field.
In 2013, ChickTech created ACT-W to accelerate the careers of women in technology and create women leaders in all levels of companies.
At ACT-W, there’s something for everyone, regardless of how technical you are. We welcome all people from all backgrounds! All proceeds from the ACT-W National Conference go towards providing local high school girls with STEM education programs and spreading ChickTech’s reach to create a culture of inclusion for all.
ACT-W National is an engaging 3-day conference where talented women and supporters in tech connect with organizations and other leaders in the community. The conference includes interactive and engaging sessions, one-on-one coaching, a Community and Career Fair, and many opportunities for networking in a supportive and uplifting environment! In addition, Friday is devoted to “train the trainer” workshops on management and diversity that give you tools to promote change in your organization.
Our sessions fall into 4 tracks:
Whether you’re a technologist, marketer, HR specialist, or a project manager, technology needs you to help lead the charge! Join talented tech women and allies with all experience levels and backgrounds for professional development, community building, leadership training, networking, and more!
