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.

Corporate Communications & Event Manager
MaryKelly Rich is the Corporate Communications & Event Manager at SkyKick - a Seattle based SaaS company, focused on building cloud products that empower IT Service Providers. She is responsible for the company’s brand storytelling initiatives, which spans from external stakeholder-facing communication plans to enterprise event creation and development. Prior to joining SkyKick, MaryKelly spent twelve years in the tech industry – specifically in the automotive and cybersecurity realms. Known for her ability to lead complex projects and consistently raise the bar, she has been tapped on the shoulder to help lead department and companywide initiatives outside of her day-to-day role at every company she has worked for. At SkyKick, she has been tapped to help drive additional, and dedicated, D&I programs. And as the first woman to get pregnant while working at SkyKick was instrumental in shaping the company’s maternity policy for future SkyKick mothers. In her spare time, MaryKelly serves as the Collegiate Marketing Adviser to the University of Washington’s Alpha Phi Sorority (now in her 14th year as an advisor). And on the weekends she can be found adoring (or struggling) with her two-year-old son’s new found independence streak #TheStruggleIsReal.
MaryKelly resides in the Bothell area with her husband and two-year-old.
