Join us for two incredible days

of raw, gritty, authentic

“TED-style” presentations from some of the most revered professionals in STEM.

Since 2012, Girls in Tech has brought together hundreds of women in tech of all ages and luminary tech leaders to create an intimate experience. The goal: to deliver sage advice and lessons learned to the next generation of women in tech, and to create a long-lasting sense of community among women in all roles and at all levels of their careers.

Catalyst delivers an experience no other conference can rival. TED-style power presentations will have you look at leaders in a whole new light—and forever change the way you approach your life, your career and all the tradeoffs in between. Unique opportunities to connect with other women in tech will not only keep you energized, but will make you realize the support system that is at your fingertips.

The Catalyst Conference

Will be the “largest intimate” tech conference you’ll ever attend, as you hear revolutionary speakers share tales of their journey to the top, career advice, how they made those decisions and, most importantly – what lessons they want to pass on to the next generation of the female tech workforce.
