Charleston Women in Tech is proud to present “1 hour, 11 amazing speakers, 10 inspiring messages”

Join us at Blackbaud’s World Headquarters on Daniel Island for an epic event celebrating the amazing women in Charleston’s technology community. 10 talented speakers will share their personal messages and insights in the form of 5-minute “Ignite” talks that you don’t want to miss. You’ll also have an opportunity to network with others in the community over snacks and spirits – a perfect way to ring in the holidays!

Attendance is FREE to all, but we will be accepting donations for
CodeON, our program for teaching code to kids in marginalized Charleston communities.
