HUE Tech Summit '19
Educate. Elevate. Empower.
The inaugural summit was the first conference in the Delaware Valley (Delaware, Pennsylvania, and South New Jersey region) created to educate, elevate, and empower women of color technologists and tech entrepreneurs. The summit took place on Friday, May 4th, 2018 in Philadelphia during Philly Tech Week. The HUE Tech Summit is a diversity in tech event sponsored in part by Samsung NEXT and powered by the Tech Women Network.
Spearheaded by Jumoke Dada, founder of the Tech Women Network, the team is made up of a group of professionals whose experience in tech range from early career to 20 years. Each individual brings a unique skill set and perspective to the planning team. Additionally, all members are passionate about helping women and girls in STEM fields thrive.
In addition to the planning team, Khalilah Asbury of the Ideal Event serves as the logistics and day of coordinator. As an independent planner and corporate planning professional, she truly adds value to the team. The event will not be a success without her expertise and the assistance of many volunteers.
