Advancing Careers in Technical Women (ACT-W) conferences run on the energy of our volunteers who care about empowering women and supporters in technology. The ACT-W Seattle Conference is an annual action-packed educational and networking event where talented women and allies can build skills, grow their community, and accelerate their career path. The conference includes speaking sessions, hands-on workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions, a career fair, happy hours, and more!
