Keeping the momentum of the inaugural event held in January 2015, the Tech Superwomen Summit (TSWS) is scheduled for May 3-4, 2018 in San Francisco, California. Tech by Superwomen, the event host, was founded to be part of the movement to change the conversation about women in tech—making it one about data and culture which are the key elements needed to foster diversity in tech.
Women and men will speak about the roles of responsibility and accountability, while identifying paths forward to change the tech culture. Greater diversity is seen as a strong pathway to new opportunities for innovation.
"This year's program includes distinguished women and men who have had a profound impact on the diversification of tech," said Cathryn Posey, TSWS founder. "Each of these leaders are presenting data-backed solutions, research and expertise that will help tackle the cultural drivers that lead to change and industry revolution.”
Kaitlyn Hova, a TSWS mentee, will be participating in the event. Hova is a full stack web developer, designer, neuroscientist and core team member of Women Who Code. She is the co-creator of the Hovalin—an open source 3D printable acoustic violin—and will close the Summit with a performance of “Superwoman” by Alicia Keys.
Sponsors include: YouTube, Microsoft Cloud Developer Advocates, Intuit, Facebook, Mozilla and Capital One.
