The Future is Female – OKWIT Spring Retreat 2019
May 3 at 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Hello, Oklahoma ladies! Oklahoma Women in Technology would love to invite all young women 13-18 years for a behind-the-scenes look into the variety of career opportunities available in the Oklahoma tech industry. We welcome individual attendees as well as larger groups and their chaperones.
This free-to-attend event will be in Tulsa and includes the chance to meet women who make an impact in tech roles and companies across our state and see first hand what it is like to have a career in tech.
Tech is a growing field in Oklahoma as traditional companies are evolving into tech companies. Come explore the many forms a tech career can take on Friday, May 3. We can’t wait to see you there!
Who can attend?
In recognition of the ongoing gender gap in IT within the classroom and in the workforce, we specifically market this event free of charge to females in local area middle and high schools (ages 13 – 18). While this event targets women, we openly welcome men who want to engage in the conversation and contribute to a more equitable, diverse society.
Lunch and Prizes!
Each attendee will receive a complimentary lunch, a bag full of SWAG, an official OKWIT Future is Female t-shirt, and have the chance to win raffle prizes.
