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.

What happens when you start to feel frustrated, worried, disappointed, or just plain mad at work? For many women the answer is to “hide in the bathroom” and cry. Why? Because up until now showing emotions in the workplace has been seen as a weakness. Yet, women and men are emotional creatures. During this panel discuss we’ll discuss when it is appropriate to express true emotions at work, how embracing vulnerability can improve your career, and tips for keeping things professional while remaining authentic to yourself.
