Thank You AWS for being the Presenting Sponsor

This event is not possible without the support of the community and volunteers

AWS support has enabled us to secure a larger space at the Galt House as we prepare for a larger than ever event this year! Our goal is to reach as many women as we possibly can so they too can be impacted and impact the lives of others.

“Amazon Web Services is honored to be the title sponsor of the 2020 Women In Tech conference in Louisville. At AWS, we believe the future of tech is every color, gender, belief, origin, and community. The future of tech is accessible, flexible, and inclusive. We all have a long way to go before realizing this future. We encourage everyone to Join the We Power Tech community to meet allies and leaders who are powering the future. Build skills, get engaged with the community and inspire the next generation. ” – AWS

Join AWS to help close the gender gap and get your business name, logo and message in front of thousands while doing your part to support women in technology.

How have the WITLOU conferences helped you?  

We have heard so many stories about women getting a promotion, new job, new friends, or speaking engagements as a result of the WITLOU conferences, but we did not record them 🙁 We would love to share your story and help others see why they should attend the event.  Record a short video of yourself talking about something the WITLOU conference did for you and why the event is needed then either send it to us via email or post it to one of your social pages and tag us. However, if you’re not a video person – just send us your written story. Let’s fill up the internet with some positive stuff for a change and give a short break from all the Covid -19 chatter.
