Innovation + Inspiration

#movethedial is one of the fastest-growing global movements dedicated to promoting the participation and leadership of all women* in tech. Our 2018 Global Summit is the first of its kind, and will attract incredible women tech leaders and supporters from across the world to create a powerful and unforgettable experience for everyone.

Attendees will hear from trailblazing speakers, top influencers, and decision makers in the tech and innovation ecosystem, rallying together to share ideas, strategies, tactics, proven best practices, and tangible tools for advancing women in tech. The Global Summit will be a space where current and future members of the tech industry can connect and learn how to #movethedial for one another, while gaining insights from  the stories of inspiring women in tech. The Global Summit is also a platform that will empower attendees to harness their own potential and recognize how they can #movethedial for themselves and others by using small actions that add up to big change. Together, we will shape a future that includes a robust talent pool and, where all women - regardless of background, education, or experience - can thrive in tech!

* At #movethedial, we seek to support all women-identified people looking to work or advance within the tech and innovation ecosystem.
