    A Conference like No Other

    What makes ACT-W unique is our focus on community and supporting women and non-binary people throughout the cycles of their tech careers. With an emphasis on inclusion, we welcome people of all genders, backgrounds, and experience levels.

    ACT-W Conferences include a variety of workshops, speaking sessions, and keynotes focused within four tracks: technical skills, leadership, DEI (diversity, equity & inclusion), and career development.

    Your registration also supports a great cause. ACT-W is powered by ChickTech, a national nonprofit dedicated to creating a more diverse and inclusive tech industry. 100% of the proceeds from ACT-W help ChickTech build a more diverse and inclusive tech culture and workforce by expanding the pipeline of underrepresented individuals pursuing tech and increasing retention throughout careers through free youth programs and a lifelong adult community of support and empowerment.
