Women In Technology Summit (And Girls Too)
WITI (Women in Technology International) is one of the first groups for Women in Technology. With a global network approaching 2 million women it’s been a favorite resource of mine throughout my career. In a few days they’ll host their 23rd Annual Summit in San Jose, California and for the 16th year in a row I will be unable to attend because my children seem to attend schools where the WITI Summit is smack dab in the middle of Final Exams or High School Graduation.
Allow me a moment to melt down at the fact that I am nearly in possession of a high school graduate.
Anyhow, back to WITI. This year they have a Middle School and High School track on June 11th. I was offered tickets for myself and my daughter but getting there would be impossible so I want to open it up to you guys.
Would you like two tickets to the 23rd Annual WITI Summit? The program is here and it’s chock full of learning from leaders in their fields. I can tell you this, with Amanda Coolong as emcee and Laurel Mintz hosting a panel I know there is content that will entertain and enlighten. These are two of the smartest women I’ve met in my decade with the Silicon Beach gang.
In any event I asked for the tickets even though I can’t go and two of you are going to win them.
If you’d like to ensure tickets for yourself you can sign up here and use the promo code INSPIRE17 to Save $250 off the conference pass and get a year of WITI membership free.
If you win the giveaway after having purchased we’ll have WITI refund your purchase price.
We’d be so excited if one of you brought your daughter to the teen program on the 11th which is a partnership with Code Circle.
As someone with a background in both education and technology I cannot emphasize enough how impressive it is that Code Circle teaches the logic behind programming. Anyone can memorize snippets. A real education has girls understanding why those snippets of code exist.
Good luck! I wish I could be there.
