McKesson Cynthia Strickland

Since 2012, Girls in Tech has brought together hundreds of women in tech of all ages and luminary tech leaders to create an intimate experience. The goal is to deliver sage advice and lessons learned to the next generation of women in tech, and to create a long-lasting sense of community among women in all roles and at all levels of their careers.

In this TED-style presentation, STEM leaders share success stories and speak about trends across tech, innovation, business, and science. These inspiring presentations change the way women approach life, careers and all the trade-offs in between.

Girls in Tech offers unique opportunities to connect with further women working in the technology arena, and the event keeps delegates energized and helps them to realize the support system that is available to them.
