Tech & Innovation Summit

with a focus on media, digital and finance technology
October 1st - 4th // New York City

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

THE SUMMIT WILL BRING TOGETHER OVER 1,000 LGBTQ WOMEN (AND ALLIES) ACROSS ALL AREAS OF TECHNOLOGY, MEDIA, DIGITAL & FINANCE

Lesbians Who Tech is hosting our second annual Summit in New York from October 1st -4th in New York. Our Summit is an effort to bring together over 1,000 queer women in tech (and allies), a group that is rarely represented in either of the communities of which they are a part– the tech community or the LGBT community – for the most unique technology conference ever.

The Summit stretches over four days featuring a diverse number of activities and experience. During the conference we will be hosting a variety of weekend events including our second annual hackathon, a new leadership development workshop for executive level attendees and fun gatherings such as Lesbians Who Golf & Bike.

We will highlight incredible queer women who have paved the way for a more equal workplace and society, as well as the next generation of technical leaders. This year in New York there will be a special focus on the intersection of technology and digital in both media and finance.

The Summit will be hosted at NYU Law School in Washington Square Park along with satellite events at various locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
