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.

Limited Capacity filling up

There is a parking garage under the building: 645 Elliott Avenue West
(entrance off W Roy Street) Sorry there is no parking validation.  Additionally, bus routes 19, 24, and 33 stop either right in front of the building or directly across the street.  Routes D, 15, 17, 18, 19, 24, and 33 also stop within a 10 minute walk from our building.

The concept behind CO-STORM is about how much more we’re able to see (brainstorm) for each other, than we see for ourselves.  There’s a creative back and forth energy in getting outside your own head.  Fresh eyes see our blind spots and filters.  They also mirror back to us what’s really going on.  A CO-STORMER’S insight can clarify what steps to take next, highlight your strengths, and make you see what should happen naturally.  It can solve a problem in your field with an outsider’s perspective.
During this session, each participant will have time for an introduction and a chance to discuss their most pressing pain point, project or idea in a safe and empowering environment.  Your CO-STORM  partners will brainstorm with you on solutions and positive changes.

This session includes an incredible group of mentors, ready to give back by sharing their experience and expertise.
