WITI Counts Down to Start of 24th Annual Women in Technology Summit

1500+ attendees from across the globe will join technology visionaries and peers for networking, coaching, and interactive workshops

San Jose, CA, June 4, 2018 - WITI (Women in Technology International) is gearing up for its 24th annual Women in Technology Summit, "Visionaries Designing Tomorrow's Tech Markets & Cultures Today," scheduled to take place from June 10-12 at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, California. The Summit will bring together global technology visionaries, cultural trailblazers, and professionals from companies across emerging and traditional categories.

For 30 years, WITI has remained a leading worldwide authority on business and technology by advocating for women's contributions to the tech industry, inspiring women to pursue STEM careers, and actively working with corporate partners to create a culture of equality. Through the Annual Women in Technology Summit, WITI provides access, practical tools, connections, and hands-on experience to its global community.

"If I could say one thing to this year's summit attendees it would be this: we're not your ordinary women's event," said WITI founder and CEO Carolyn Leighton. "Women and men face countless situations their education and experience does not prepare them to handle throughout their career. You can be smart, experienced, and knowledgeable in your work, but not knowing how to effectively navigate company politics and relationship building can completely block your efforts to achieve your career goals. And this is why WITI is committed to equipping our community with the skills to handle these challenges so they can successfully achieve their goals. At the Summit, we'll leverage the transformative power of coaching and interactive learning to equip attendees for the modern workplace."

This year's Annual Women in Technology Summit attendees can participate in a wide variety of hands-on learning experiences, including but not limited to:

This year's Summit will open attendees up to a wide variety of emerging technologies, including autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, blockchain, virtual reality, Space/Mars exploration, and more. Speakers come from diverse backgrounds and industries, representing Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IDC, Electronic Arts, LinkedIn, PBS, IBM, NASA, Johnson & Johnson, the United Nations, and dozens of other leading companies.

The WITI team aims to make a tremendous impact on the professional career of summit participants by painting the big picture of possibilities they can achieve in their lifetime. Attendees will get connected, access coaching, and feel inspired across new business opportunities in the technology field, emerging innovative solutions to the world's biggest problems, and leadership advice.
