Women in Technology Summit 2021

We're in IT Together

The Women in Technology Summit is an annual University System of Georgia event that is attended by women and men from all 26 public universities in Georgia and beyond and is aimed at improving the diversity gap (specifically in technology) and more broadly in STEM-related careers.
The Summit is an educational networking event that explores the gender and racial gap in STEM careers, spotlights efforts underway to bridge the gap, highlights the benefits associated with diversity and inclusion, and encourages participants to become engaged in moving the needle in this area.
