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.

Participants will co-create a set of diversity practices for organization’s stakeholders, including teammates, managers, HR Manager and leadership, while taking into account the immigrants’ challenges and needs in a fast-paced tech industry.
