Tech It Out

Thanks to everyone who joined us in October 2023!

The WICT Network’s Tech It Out Initiative premiered in 2009 with the goal of creating strong women leaders in technology, while also raising awareness about the vast opportunities for women in the tech fields within our industry. A growing body of research shows that strengthening gender diversity fosters innovation and improves the bottom line. Programs like Tech It Out give our stakeholders tools they need to keep pace with the latest advances in technology while connecting them with industry leaders and pioneers.

The WICT Network: Carolinas Tech It Out Conference 2022 was great as it touched on the importance of cyber security at the personal level, up to the ways in which large companies are protecting their customers. I walked away with changes I could make to my daily practices to keep myself better protected in such a digital world.
