Girls in Tech Catalyst Conference June 19-20

WORLD’S MOST TRANSFORMATIVE CONFERENCE FOR WOMEN IN TECH

The Girls in Tech Catalyst Conference is a can’t miss opportunity to get amped about your career and meet the community of people who can help get you where you want to go. No matter who you are.

Featuring high-energy keynotes, inclusive panel discussions, and breakout sessions led by leaders at the forefront of the technology and business sectors, attendees will walk away with tactical skills, the know-how to navigate the twists and turns of their careers, and a genuine community full of role models, mentors, and new friends. It all happens at Bespoke in San Francisco on June 19-20.

Catalyst welcomes everyone – from software engineers, product marketers, human resources pros, investors, college students, data scientists, digital marketers, startup founders, and more.

Studies show two of the biggest reasons people drop out of tech careers are the lack of role models and mentors. At Catalyst, we offer both, and then some.

Whether you’re just starting out or looking to change careers, Catalyst is for people ready to take the next step in their personal and professional lives.

The Hidden Benefits of Being A Woman in Tech

Check out Robyn Scott’s article in Quartz at Work. Robyn is co-Founder and CEO of Apolitical.

“In our experience, for every unsavory male VC, there is at least one wonderful, powerful woman (or man) supporting women in tech. Some are visible, hailing from obvious quarters. Our lead investor is a former Goldman Sachs trader, the youngest women and first female trader to make partner. She’s a well-known and outspoken investor in women entrepreneurs. By contrast, our other critical early investor is a British venture capitalist educated at Eton and Cambridge. Though he looks and sounds like the epitome of the establishment, and he resists using terms like “women’s empowerment” or “gender equity,” he privately gets excited about funding the first company with an all woman board on the Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 Index. Collectively, investors like these represent a powerful and growing movement. Motivated to varying degrees by principles and good sense—investing in underrated women is a business opportunity—these angels are an incredible asset for female founders: they are incentivized to support both a return on their money and a return on their principles and, in our experience, they accordingly go far beyond the call of duty in terms of helping the company.” Read the full article here.
