Women-in-tech Conferences: The Best Events for 2023

Bizzabo Blog Staff
Share

Ready for the most authoritative and comprehensive list of 2023 women-in-tech events?

The number of women-in-tech events has been increasing year over year, further highlighting the importance of a more inclusive culture in tech. In fact, during the pandemic, women’s participation in virtual STEM conferences increased by as much as 253% when compared to in-person conferences (USC, 2021).

We’ve established a comprehensive directory of the most prominent women-in-tech conferences happening in 2023. These events focus on empowering women through conferences that help attendees learn new skills, make valuable connections, discuss innovative trends, promote intersectionality, and access motivational leaders.

Here is a brief breakdown of the types of events you’ll come across on this list:

  • Conferences: These events will often times attract the most significant number of attendees. Conferences provide the best opportunity to network and build connections with other professionals passionate about diversity in tech.
  • Summits: Usually slightly smaller in scale and more exclusive, women-in-tech summits will feature higher-level executives with substantial experience in the industry.
  • Seminars: These intimate gatherings usually bring in less than 100 attendees and focus on providing 1-on-1 mentorship to women looking to navigate the tech space.

Tech Intersections

Tech Intersections was created to address the needs of women (cis and trans) of color, such as Blacks and Latinas, who rarely see others like themselves in the workplace, especially in higher-ranking positions. Existing tech conferences — even ones specifically designed for women — often have few underrepresented women in attendance and as speakers, especially on technical topics. Additionally, tech conferences are typically unaffordable, creating a financial barrier to those interested in breaking into the industry.
