Talent Innovation Summit

The annual Talent Innovation Summit provides an opportunity to highlight how companies are attracting and retaining women in tech. Tech professionals from across the state gather to hear keynote speeches, a best practices pitch competition and see the companies that made it on the WTC Shatter list.

2023 Talent Summit

Our companies, careers and colleagues are facing constant change, and the rate of change is accelerating. With the chaos of this ever-changing talent landscape, we need to maintain forward momentum, not fall back in our important gains for women in tech.

Join us for this year’s Talent Innovation Summit, where technology leaders and community members come together to talk about these changes, their impact, and how to remain constant and make progress in the things that matter.
