On March 7, the 1st Annual San Diego Tech Women's Summit convened the region’s thriving and diverse tech workforce as we celebrated International Women’s Day in America’s Finest City. This Summit was produced by a strategic collaboration of San Diego-based advocacy organizations and women employee resources groups (ERGs) including Athena, Blacks in Technology SD, Designing Women, Girls in Tech San Diego, #LatinaGeeks, LEARN Academy, Qualcomm, TechSesh, Tech Women @Intuit, Women in Technology at Sony, and Women Who Code San Diego. Welcome to the power of collaboration!

Ranking 5th in the nation with the highest concentration of engineers and scientists, San Diego tech companies joined industry leaders, rising tech stars and gender equality advocates as our community reimagines the region as a destination for diversity. By creating this safe space defined by inclusiveness and innovation, participants were able to enhance their career paths and intimately understand which companies and career strategies most align with their core values and career ambitions.

Hosted at Qualcomm Campus, 250+ participants convened to learn from keynote speakers, panels and a tech career and resources fair.
