This month, join New Tech Seattle to celebrate and empower women in the tech industry, discuss ways we can ensure women will be fully represented, and advance the conversation forward.

Our theme for this month is Women In Tech. It’s no secret, companies with more women and more gender diversity perform better than those with less. We’re excited to invite you to learn about the difficulties, successes, and benefits of women in the tech industry, and what we can all do to ensure women aren’t just fully represented, but thrive.
