The Women In Tech Soiree, now a staple and one of the most anticipated events held during Philly Tech Week, serves the purpose of highlighting the supportive spaces and places dedicated to the progression of technology, innovation, and education within women and diverse groups in Philadelphia.
This event brings together some of the most talented, savvy, and passionate women in the city for an evening of knowledge sharing while mixing and mingling over celebratory cocktails and fare. For this 5th Year Anniversary, the Soiree will feature Candice Matthews Brackeen as one of our Keynote Speakers, alongside a panel of rock star women within the regional tech community. The inspiration from the speakers and the overall program, is designed to promote connection, collaboration, and success.
ITAG is proud to be a sponsor for this special 5th anniversary event!
