Hartford Tech Forum "Information & Leadership - New Roles, New Rules for Men & Women" | May 8, 2018
Welcome to the 2018 Hartford Tech Forum
Welcome to the 2018 Tech Forum inaugural event! We invite you to be part of this exciting new forum where IT Leaders in the Central Connecticut area come together to hear and discuss challenges and opportunities in Leadership, Business and Technology.
The Society for Information Management (SIM) is partnering with Women in Technology, International (WITI) to bring this one-day session to you.
Engage in topics related to leadership development, recruiting and retention, and current technology topics ranging from cybersecurity, blockchain and IoT. You will gain insights from our presenters and panel participants as well as have opportunities to engage in direct discussions.
Attendees across the region have come to expect a dynamic agenda with relevant topics and exciting speakers who will share their wealth of knowledge and experience. Our goal is to help you gain practical insights into your business challenges. The 2018 Hartford Tech Forum includes powerful keynotes, informative breakouts, discussions with subject-matter experts, and cutting-edge solution providers.
Network with other leaders, forge connections, share resources, and discover opportunities across various technology disciplines.
As the day wraps up you are invited to celebrate with us as we present the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT) Aspirations in Computing awards to local high school students recognized for their great work and interest in pursuing a technology based career. Information Technology has long been a male-dominated career and NCWIT’s mission is aimed at increasing the participation of women in IT and all technical fields.
Here in Connecticut, the Society for Information Management has worked to encourage all students interested in technology to follow their dreams – our work dovetails nicely with that of NCWIT and for the past three years we have hosted the winners of the Aspirations in Computing award to recognize high school women for their achievements in technology.
The Society for Information Management (SIM), is an organization intended for Senior IT Executives to discuss and share experiences related to technology and business structure. The group’s mission is to provide an open forum, devoid of sales and marketing solicitations, for area executives with IT decision-making responsibility to network.
WITI is the premiere global organization empowering women in business and technology to achieve unimagined possibilities.
