Conshohocken, PA (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Alliance Global Services is proud to announce its sponsorship of the third annual Philly Women in Tech Summit which focuses on advancing the role of women in technology. The event will take place on Saturday, April 12 at WHYY’s headquarters in Center City, Philadelphia.
“We’re excited to again be part of the Philly Women in Tech Summit. Alliance is committed to supporting the growth of young women in technology because of the exceptional professional opportunities that exist, and the trend that fewer women are pursuing careers in technology,” comments John Castleman, President and CEO.
Philly Women in Tech is dedicated to supporting, challenging, and empowering women in all stages and areas of technology careers. The theme, “Lead from Any Chair,” encourages women to attend, learn and network whether they leverage technology to affect business outcomes or are on the team that brings technical advances to life. All proceeds from the event will support TechGirlz, a non-profit organization committed to empowering girls to be future technology leaders.
“The summit allows for women from all areas of technology and business to network, educate and learn from one another in an open and collaborative environment,” said Liz Smith, Vice President, Human Resources, who is serving on the planning committee of the event and moderating the panel discussion on Cloud Data Ownership. “We are also looking forward to continuing to work with TechGirlz in support of its mission to empower girls to become future technology leaders through mentoring.”
At the Philly Women in Tech Summit attendees will learn about the trends affecting how individuals and companies communicate and make decisions including Big Data, Cloud Computing, Data Visualization, Mobile, and how these forces are converging, disrupting business models, and creating new opportunities. The Summit schedule contains 9 sessions across three tracks: hands-on development workshops, business technology presentations, and ‘Lean In Circle’ discussion groups.
