Chicago Women in Technology Conference 2020 - Day 2

to
CHIWITCON™ 2020 is back for our 5th annual conference in a virtual format!

With a virtual CHIWITCON™, attendees will get to experience all of the same great things from past years:
  • Outstanding speakers from around the Chicago tech community who can't wait to share their actionable advice, best practices, and lessons learned from challenges overcome
  • Interactive breakout sessions regarding the current challenges facing our community
  • Sponsor Expo for attendees to check out the supporting companies and connect on career opportunities
  • Tools and resources to connect and network with the community

Join us as CHIWITCON™ will be split across two half-days this year:

Day One: Thursday, September 17th - Empowering Your Community and Yourself
Day Two: Thursday, September 24th - Resiliency

Note: All ticket proceeds will be going to Project Exploration. Project Exploration is a Chicago-based nonprofit science education organization that works to ensure communities traditionally overlooked by science—particularly minority youth and girls—have access to personalized experiences with science and scientists. We feel that this charity strongly aligns with the values that CHIWITCON™ itself represents.
