Join us Jan 29-Feb 2- 2018 for the inaugural Women in Tech Regatta Week.

The Regatta is a curated collection of events, workshops and conversations designed to connect women in tech to mentors, peers, resources and to the power of community. We will dwell in the realm of what’s possible, rather than simply what is.

Sessions are grouped thematically and each session will be hosted at one of five ports. Attend all or create a personalized itinerary aligned to your specific interests, by checking off the sessions below.

What if your identity didn't fit into the conventional confines of the workplace? What part of yourself do you hide? What part do you refuse to hide? How can you help colleagues and employers accept who you are? Join us for a meaningful evening of learning and storytelling, as we listen to thirteen diverse speakers from our community answer the question, "What is your identity and how do you express it at work?" Gain a different perspective as each storyteller shares their personal experiences in a series of 5 minute flash talks.
