WOMEN IN TECH SUMMIT

WEDNESDAY | APRIL 14 | ALL DAY

The Women in Tech Summit is a special event designed specifically for women in IT. The conference highlights the achievements of ladies in tech and provides opportunities for collaboration, professional development, and networking. This event also includes a fireside chat, panel presentations, and lunch.

 

The Summit is also about networking and sharing from industry thought leaders; life lessons learned and practical tips to improve your own career goals. Or sharing personal stories of how they’ve made an impact on inclusivity in their industry, passions, their journey, and advice to the next generation of tech's women.

 

When women attend the Women in Tech Summit, they feel more connected to the local DFW community of women technologists and far less isolated than they might feel in their daily lives. The opportunity to see and hear what other women are doing inspires them to return to work the next day and continue building their career in tech.

 

Registration is just $65.00 and includes access to Women in Tech Summit, all InnoTech Conference sessions, lunch, and networking reception. Access to the ShareCloud Summit is not included and requires separate registration and payment. Click on the 'Register Now' button above to register.

Hypergiant

One of biggest challenges in the software/tech industry is education on the topic of Artificial Intelligence. Many companies have done more harm than good by pushing the hype and flash of intelligent technologies, peddling symbolism over substance and ultimately overpromising and underdelivering on their commitments. As the market leader for applied intelligence, Hypergiant aims to change the conversation by helping teams understand the history and pragmatic application of intelligent technologies as they pertain to real business challenges and objectives. Fremont will lead a relevant, engaging and eye-opening session exploring AI from the perspective of Greek mythology to present-day realities. By illuminating the real-world application of the mathematics and data science behind the tapestry of technologies that is AI, your team will walk away with a better understanding of how they relate to the future of your business.
