Be In It: Stories to elevate and empower Women+ of color in tech


Join leading industry professionals as we elevate the voices of women+ in tech during the Be In It virtual event on March 30th from 6:30pm-8:30pm EST.

Through the power of storytelling, we aspire to bring together women whose voices are often unheard/overlooked in the tech industry, for a virtual empowerment event. The goal is simple - uplifting women in tech (and everywhere) by creating a space to hear powerful and authentic stories of career failures, hurdles, challenges, resiliency, overcoming, and advancement from leaders within communities of color. We want women to be inspired to take control of their futures and craft the narrative they want for their lives, even in the face of adversity. We will elevate voices and leverage learnings from one another, to drive diversity and representation of women in an industry in desperate need of female insight. It only takes one to pave the way… others will follow.

+ Tune in to a 60-minute panel conversation featuring leading women in tech
+ Take part in an audience Q&A session to engage with the panelists
+ Share your story and connect with women+ in tech in breakout sessions
