Women In Tech is an action-oriented initiative of the Technology Council of Central Pennsylvania with a clear goal – creating an inclusive and level playing field regardless of gender within the Central Pennsylvania technology industry.  Our current efforts include quarterly programming, our annual Women In Tech Awards and our new Women In Tech Mentoring program.

Our quarterly events provide a variety of forums for learning, discussion, debate, collaboration and action.  We believe this isn’t just a woman-issue or a man-issue, but an everyone-issue and is one that can only be overcome when we all work together.

Upcoming Women In Tech programs include (click on name to register):
