About ACT-W

Presented by ChickTech, the nation’s leading nonprofit in growing and retaining the number of women and girls in technology, ACT-W is an engaging conference bringing together talented tech women and allies, from beginning programmers to senior developers, to C-suite executives and YOU!

What makes ACT-W unique is our focus on community and supporting women throughout the cycles of their tech careers. With an emphasis on inclusion, we welcome people of all genders as well as backgrounds. Regardless of how technical you are, there is something you can take away from an ACT-W Conference.

All proceeds from the ACT-W Conferences go towards providing local high school girls with STEM education programs and spreading ChickTech’s reach to create a culture of inclusion for all.
