Accelerate your career. Support women in tech.

Presented by ChickTech, the nation’s leading nonprofit in growing and retaining the number of women and girls in technology, ACT-W is an engaging conference bringing together talented tech women and allies, from beginning programmers to senior developers, to C-suite executives and YOU!
