About the Event

Presented by ChickTech Seattle, the ACT-W (Advancing the Careers of Technical Women) Seattle Conference is an annual action-packed event where talented women and allies can build skills, grow their community, and accelerate their career path. Join us and other women and allies in tech for speaking sessions, hands-on workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions, a career fair, and so much more. We welcome all people from all backgrounds and people of all genders!

All proceeds from the ACT-W Seattle Conference go towards providing local girls and gender nonconforming youth with STEM education programs and spreading ChickTech’s reach to create a culture of inclusion for all. To learn more about these programs click here.

What to expect at ACT-W: Seattle

Pre-Event Happy Hour

Meet fellow ACT-W: Seattle attendees at a fun, casual Happy Hour before the event!

Talks & Sessions

Our speakers range in age, gender, job functions, and industries. From five-minute lightning talks to hour-long technical and interactive workshops, you’ll walk away feeling inspired and reinvigorated. Most sessions aim to be interactive, giving you the opportunity to engage with fellow attendees and presenters.

Community Fair

Connect with peers, take a break, and continue to build upon themes and topics that energize you at our Career & Community Fair. This is not your typical exhibit hall at a conference; you’ll still get the opportunity to connect with hiring companies, but you’ll also meet organizations, founders, and peers passionate about supporting diversity and inclusion.

Career Development

Boost your career by engaging with our professional development experts. Career coaches and mentors will offer resume reviews, mock interviews, and other tips & tricks to help you get your dream job! Other topics include salary negotiation, communication skills, and leadership coaching–valuable for job seekers AND settled professionals!

Join talented professionals and advocates with all experience levels and backgrounds for professional development, technical and non-technical workshops, community building, leadership coaching, networking and more!

ACT-W is built for companies, too! At one of the largest Women in Tech conferences in Oregon, you’ll find top-notch talent and invaluable opportunities to promote your product or services.
