Women in Tech Regatta 2017 — A race to connect women to mentors, peers and resources
On May 2, 2017, Seattle’s own Women In Tech (WIT), an organization dedicated to educating, empowering and connecting women working in or aspiring to work in technology, will host its inaugural Women in Tech Regatta. The WIT team hopes to make its mission more tangible by creating an evening of urgency to connect women to over 30 organizations, elite mentors and co-storming opportunities that will move their careers to the next level.
“We at WIT passionately believe connections not only reshape your career, they broaden your skill set. We hope to provide a powerful evening for women to collectively connect to resources, mentoring and a spirit to completely shatter the glass ceiling making our industry a more inclusive, diverse environment,” said Martina Welkhoff, WIT President.
Bringing it all together: The Women in Tech Regatta in Seattle. Connections that will reshape your career and stretch your skill set.
The Puget Sound region is home to many organizations dedicated to making the tech industry a more inclusive, diverse environment, and their number is growing each year. These include standalones, meet-ups inside big companies, small startups and non-profits. We love that…and we think it’s time to all get together. We invite you to join us for our Inaugural Women in Tech Seattle Regatta.
Our purpose is simple: to help you collaborate, make connections, and move your Tech career to the next level.
