Today, more girls are women are using technology but they are underrepresented in roles that develop and manage this technology/ This Summit will be part in changing that.

Partnering with TWISTR and the Cambia Portland Classic Golf tournament, will create a platform and a resource to further women’s careers in technology as well as to create excitement, inspire, educate and equip young women with the professional network and skills that will enable them to pursue careers in the STEM and technology fields.
