With more than a 30-year career in the tech industry, I still often felt like I was on the outside until the Women in Tech Summit made a point of welcoming in women who worked in the industry but were not scientists or engineers. It is an inclusive approach that I appreciated. The Women in Tech Summit is a great way to get inspired, learn something new and support a great cause, TechGirlz. – Bobbie Carlton, Founder, Innovation Women
