About the Women in IT Summit

This year marks the launch of the 2019 Women in IT New York Summit, co-located with the Women in IT Awards on March 28th at the Cipriani 42nd Street venue.

With the U.S. being one of the biggest powerhouses for technological innovation and development, there is no better place to advance your career in tech. More so now, as we see more and more exciting new technologies such AI, Machine Learning, Blockchain as well as new developments within data, analytics and cyber security. The opportunities to get involved and to contribute to this growth are endless…or are they?

The IT and technology industries continue to be heavily dominated by male professionals and little has changed since diversity and inclusion discussions began. In IT for example, the percentage of global female IT leaders remains at 9%. In the U.S., women make up less than 20% of the tech jobs, even though they make up more than half of the whole U.S. workforce (Small Business Trends, 2018). This lack of inclusion and diversity is actually impacting how tech is programmed and designed today.

This is your opportunity to hear from and network with some of the most interesting individuals in this industry.
