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.

Ageism in the Workplace: Are You Getting Pushed Off the Boat?

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.

Baby Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials are trying to co-exist in the workforce today. Ageism is casted over older employees as well as Millennials who experience difficulties because of their age. In this session we will discuss the challenges each generation faces and ways we can create better understanding and awareness in everyone.
