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 3: Leadership (CEO’s & Startups)  We’ll hear from a diverse group of CEO’s and startup leaders who will discuss multi-dimensional leadership, building credibility and avoiding isolation.
  • 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.
  • Port 5: Career Acumen (Building relationships) Learn about how storytelling, mentorship, and meaningful connections will help you meet your career goals and win the race.
Closing Celebration:  Enjoy the last day of the WiT Regatta Week at the Progressive Closing Celebrations. Participate in a variety of exciting pop in events: Complimentary headshots, fashion exhibits, interactive VR, candlelight meditation, résumé review, workplace hacks and more... Connect, nibble & sip with new and old friends.

The Right Crew: Secrets to a Successful Ally/Mentee Partnership

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Session Address:
501 Eastlake Ave E.
Seattle, WA  98109
The East part is key.  Capital One’s  logo is not yet on the building but there is Pro Sports Club signage.  When you arrive come up to the 4th floor.  There is a building garage with public parking but South Lake Union is a hot area so it’s not guaranteed.

We all have blind spots when navigating through our careers. Through proactive ally/mentee relationships these blind spots can be addressed. Get the inside scoop from our panel of successful ally/mentee teams. You’ll hear how their partnerships started, how they supported each other and the positive impact they had on each other. Learn what helped make these ally/mentee relationships thrive and how you can apply them in your own ally/mentee relationship.
