About

The Event

With the current gender gap, it is important that we raise the awareness of women’s contributions to technology and encourage more women to enter the field at an early age.

At the Women in Technology Conference, executives, entrepreneurs, and technology thought leaders will converge to discuss topics like artificial intelligence, data science, coding, cybersecurity, software engineering, and more. The conference offers professional development for attendees, including opportunities to advance skills, network with peers, and be inspired by women who are making an impact in the IT industry.

This is a #TechCityEvent, growing the awareness of greater Louisville’s tech ecosystem and an emerging hub for tech talent!

The Women in Tech Conference is so important to this community. Of course it’s great for networking with other women in tech, but truly it’s so much more than that. One reason being that it brings together women of all age groups, including students. Young girls may be more interested in pursuing a career path in technology when they’re able to see other women doing it and being super successful at it. It’s also important that we have people from all perspectives and backgrounds making and shaping the technology of our future. Lastly, it gives us a venue to lift each other up, connect each other with resources, and share our stories.”

After being laid off due to Covid, I initially started volunteering for the WIT-Louisville Conference as a way to fill time and hopefully do some good in the community. The amount of camaraderie and genuine goodwill among the leadership and committees (which include women AND men) has been fantastic. Seeing what goes on behind the scenes in a sincere effort to empower and encourage women's role in tech fields, specifically within our region has been inspiring.”

I choose to be a part of the WIT community in Louisville to be able to support and connect women. Many times I am a part of leadership conversations with customers and I am the only female in the room. I am passionate about connecting people and this event allows me to meet people in the industry and introduce them to others. My favorite part is networking and seeing all the different types of women that show up.”

I am new to tech and only heard about the conference last year in the summer. I got very excited at the idea of getting together with a bunch of women with the same interests. When I got to the conference, I was blown away. I had no idea what to expect, but it certainly was not 500 women getting together. It was the most incredible experience, which is why I wanted to participate in the planning committee."

Matt Mullenweg, American entrepreneur and web developer, once said “Technology is best when it brings people together” and that can be said about the Louisville Women in Technology Conference. It brings women and men from all walks of life and careers together into one harmonious event. As a first time attendee I left empowered to see women that walk on the path that it is not just about ideas, it is about making ideas happen.”

It was incredibly inspiring to see so many women in technology in one room during the WIT Conference. From the keynote to the breakout sessions, and even just the ladies I had the pleasure of having lunch with, I was so happy to be part of a conference that was focused on women in tech and inspiring other young women to pursue a career in STEM."

I had the luxury to be a part of this fantastic conference from its start and watched it grow to be an arena for local female professionals to come together to find their passion. As one of the speakers of the conference in 2018, I saw how we could inspire one another to be a better self and achieve our dreams. The conference enables us to come together, share our ideas from the latest technology trends, and learn how we can grow professionally in our careers."
