Make HERstory: Where We’ve Been, and Where We’re Going; 3rd Annual Women in Tech Conference

If you haven’t heard the news, there has been a declining pipeline of women in technology since the early 90’s! Surprising that with all the technological advances we’ve seen and adopted that women have been few but powerful behind the scenes!

Columbus Women in Tech and would like to invite and welcome you to the 3rd annual conference for Columbus Women in Technology.

The conference features career & leadership, technical, and innovation topics to an audience of 750 women ranging from software delivery roles, leadership & management, technical & engineering, and recruiting/sales roles supporting the industry.

This event celebrates the contributions that women have made to computing, while focusing on how we can improve the opportunities to for women to contribute to the next era of innovation.

We encourage you to be part of the conversation by sending a group of women in technical roles from your company to this uplifting, motivational, and educational conference.

The keynotes represent the narrative of “Where We’ve Been” and “Where We’re Going”.  Lori Beer, CIO JPMorgan Chase has made a huge dent in HERstory by becoming the first woman CIO of a top global financial corporation. In addition, she sits on a 50% women operating committee which is just about unheard of in Fortune 500!

Marie Hicks, professor and author of “Programmed Inequality” defines “Where We’ve Been” in our event narrative and shares with us how to prepare for a future where women have equal influence and opportunity in tech.
