A Conference Like No Other

What makes ACT-W unique is our focus on community and supporting womxn throughout the cycles of their tech careers. With an emphasis on inclusion, we welcome people of all genders, backgrounds, and levels of technical understanding. Whether you’re a beginning programmer, senior developer, or C-suite executive, there is something you can take away from an ACT-W Conference.

All proceeds from ACT-W Conferences go towards providing underserved high school girls and non-binary students with STEM education programs, helping ChickTech’s work towards creating a culture of inclusion for all.
