Tech Women Rising

Standing Together. Growing Together. Rising Together.

Start off into spring: join your peers, reach for your goals, spend an invigorating weekend with fellow women in tech! Tech Women Rising is She's Coding's inaugural 2018 conference, happening in March at Galvanize on Pioneer Square in Seattle, WA.

Technical women of all levels and backgrounds - join us when we meet at Tech Women Rising to learn, share, and grow together. Tech Women Rising is not your typical tech conference! We combine three parts into one event: workshops meant to teach and empower; a career & community fair meant to connect and build bridges; an unconference meant to inspire, support & grow a community.

The event will be open to women and people of diverse gender.

We start the day off with a combo of Imposter Syndrome workshop and inspirational talk, setting the stage for all of you to realize you have something to share, your voice counts and is heard, and you can actively participate in the upcoming group get-togethers. This is followed by a pure 'Unconference' part, where you will build your own agenda and create topic-based discussion groups.

Shruti Van Wicklen, CS Fundamentals Instructor at Ada Developers Academy, will start off with a hands-on workshop on Imposter Syndrome.

Melody Biringer, founder and producer of the WiT Regatta, will join us with her inspirational talk "Launch it Broken, Fix it Live".

She’s Coding is a WA charity with the main goal to help close the gender gap in tech. We operate on three main pillars: (1) An open-source website that educates women, allies and companies about the gender gap, developed in mentorship-based volunteer groups. (2) An offline and online safe community for women in tech. And (3), an effort to support women in their tech industry job searches via events and collaborations.
