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 techpreneurs. The 2nd HUE Tech Summit will take place on Friday, May 3rd. The HUE Tech Summit is a diversity event powered by the Tech Women Network – a searchable, online platform for technical women.
The @huetechsummit was such an amazing experience! Thank you @jumokedada for the opportunity to participate with phenomenal women.
It was REAL!
We laughed, we sighed, we nodded. We acknowledged that our experiences are real - and that while we might be an “only” in our organization, we are far from an ONLY. The power in shared experiences allows us to keep our confidence high, and to realize that we can change the way things work.
Can't wait until next year!
Had an awesome experience at #HUETechSummit on Friday during Philly Tech Week. The experience truly educated, elevated, and empowered! I can't wait for next year's summit!
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 event logistics and day of coordinator. Paris Tyler of Vibrant Communications is national communications expert and serves as our lead for public relations and partnerships. The event would not be a success without their expertise or the assistance of our volunteers.
