About the Women in Tech Festival

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 two full days of inspiring talks, startup pitches, thought-provoking discussions and educational workshops.
