ACT-W Conferences

Ranging from local or regional one-day events to a national week-long experience, Advancing the Careers of Technical Women (ACT-W) Conferences bring together people of all genders to build a community of support and empowerment leading to an equitable technology future that includes equal pay, participation, and representation. While we focus on the needs of women and non-binary individuals, we welcome people of all genders into our community and at our events.

What makes ACT-W conferences unique is our emphasis on inclusion and access to a multigenerational community that supports technologists throughout the cycles of their careers. Regardless of how technical you are, there is something you can take away from ACT-W, and you are welcome here! From 1:1 career coaching to technical workshops to shifting corporate culture to a space of inclusion, all conferences are action-oriented, leaving attendees feeling included, empowered, and ready to accelerate their careers.
