The Women in Tech Summit (WITS) is held biannually, with events in spring and fall each year. It offers women and underrepresented minorities a chance to network and explore new technology trends. The goal is to help these groups advance their careers in technology, whether in writing code or some other tech area.

What Are the Dates for the Women in Tech Summit?

WITS will kick off in 2022 with a virtual conference from April 27 through April 29. You can see the list of 2022 speakers and the full WITS schedule on their website.

In 2021, the Spring WITS took place March 24-26, 2021, and the Fall summit was from October 20-22, 2021. The events are virtual for the time being.

How To Register To Attend

Anyone interested in technology can attend, as can those who want to connect with women working in tech. You can register for a single event or both, and students can take advantage of discounted pricing.

You can purchase tickets (regular and student rates available) now.

What Kinds of Topics Are Covered at WITS?

The conference intersperses personal growth topics among hardcore tech topics, which sets it apart from the more traditional industry events that focus solely on tech.

This year's event includes sessions on cybersecurity, AI in reproductive medicine, data literacy, and algorithmic biases. Women leaders from Amazon Web Services, Roku, Ford Motor Company, Meta, Audible, and Bloomberg are among the speakers.

The 2021 Spring event covered broad ground, from a fireside chat involving women's responsibilities to future generations to machine learning kits and protecting organizational assets.

Speakers include women from all corners of technology, including Mansi Kamdar from Walmart Labs, Helen Horstmann-Allen of Fastmail, and Amy Cliett of TechGirlz.
