Join us April 23-27- 2018 for the Women in Tech Regatta Week.

The Regatta is a curated collection of events, workshops and conversations designed to connect women in tech to mentors, peers, resources and to the power of community. We will dwell in the realm of what’s possible, rather than simply what is.

Sessions are grouped thematically and each session will be hosted at one of five ports. Create a personalized itinerary aligned to your specific interests, by checking off the sessions below.

Monday Kick off opening party– Resource reception featuring over 30 orgs from our vibrant city that support women and girls in tech- all during one night, under one roof.
Port Tracks: During the week we’re hosting over 30 breakout sessions across the city. Sessions are grouped thematically and each session will be hosted at 1 of 5 ports. 
  • Port 1: Tech Mavens (keeping you relevant in tech)  We’ll be talking about everything from AI, to Crypto-Currency, to growing as a coder.
  • Port 2: Inclusive Culture (Allyship)  The focus here is on ending gender bias in the workplace & building stronger, more diverse teams.

  • Port 4: All about YOU (Build your story)  This is all about you- being bold,  intentional and building resilience. Pump up your side hustle and put some mojo into your personal brand.

Limited Capacity seats available

Northeastern's entrance is located on the NORTH corner of Terry and Republican. 401 Terry Ave N Suite 103

Join our debate: Is the discussion around ethics keeping up to the pace of technological advancements? Should ethics shape what we develop and what are the trade-offs? Topics that will be explored include: - Security and privacy and data: a shared responsibility and the important role that the tech sector, customers, companies and governments play in protecting and defending the internet -- and ourselves from data breaches. - AI and machine learning: How do we as developers and consumers deal with AIs being developed for usages we might not perceive as ethical.
