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.

Northeastern University
Graduate Teaching Assistant
A Master's student graduating this May with a MS Computer Science from Northeastern (Seattle) through the ALIGN program, having graduated with a Bachelor's in Health Science from Northeastern (Boston) in 2015. Through the ALIGN program, I have successfully completed 2 software engineering internships and post-graduation will be joining Google (New York office) full time as a Software Engineer this July. Jumping into a completely new field, let alone the tech field, has been a wonderfully intense whirlwind and has strengthened my skills of learning and growing, being flexible and adaptable, and being comfortable being uncomfortable. I love to move fast and I thrive in change. I am passionate about fixing the health care system, about networking (the computer kind not the people kind), about cyber security, and about gender diversity in tech (the kind that includes non-binary and trans people). You can call me Susanna or Z and refer to me using they/them pronouns (:
