About the event

“Amazing Festival! Raw, Real and Refreshing. Speakers shared great tools and tips for thriving as founders, leaders in tech.”     –Festival attendee

Silicon Valley Forum’s annual Women in Tech Festival celebrates women in STEM, business, and leadership who work to inspire, engage, and empower other women. The Women in Tech Festival invites ALL women (as well as anyone who supports the advancement of women and believes in the importance of diversity) to join together for three full days virtually and in-person of inspiring talks, keynotes, startup pitches, thought-provoking discussions, educational workshops, career mentorship and networking.


At the Women in Tech Festival, you’ll create lasting connections and exchange ideas in a welcoming, supportive and fun environment.
