Find out more about the history of the Women in Technology World Series!

Founded in 2015 in London, The Women in Technology World Series has been the habitual stomping ground for the women in tech community to learn about the latest technology trends, grow their networks and elevate in their careers. Over the past six years, the series has enjoyed unprecedented success, expanding to several locations across the globe including San Francisco, Houston, Boston, Amsterdam and Dublin.

Michaela Jeffery-Morrison founded the series with the mission to create a global movement for change in tech. The series provides content that inspires and educates, helps form connections that last well-beyond the event dates and crafts experiences that shake the industry into action. The event’s core belief is that equal opportunity and representation within technology is essential to the balanced and inclusive development of the sector.

“As organizers, our goal is to create the world’s leading tech conferences for women, rather than just women in tech events. There is a subtle, but critical difference and this difference, along with our global perspective and years of experience, means we offer something very unique in the market,” says Michaela Jeffery-Morrison, Managing Director & Founder of the Women in Technology World Series.

Previous speakers at events range from leading women in technology such as Bumble’s Founder and CEO, Whitney Wolfe Herd, to the Former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama; the series has welcomed an unrivaled line-up of industry leaders and disruptors.

The Women in Technology World Series are incredibly excited to be bringing their market-leading offering to the DMV-metro area. This event is an unmissable opportunity for the local women in the tech community to gather in one place, to gain inspiration and to leverage practical insight to supercharge their career in the tech sector.

“Our theme for the Women in Technology World Series 2024 is Digital X Human; exploring how the two forces are interacting and influencing each other, and how they can be leveraged to create a better future for all of us by embracing this form of collaborative intelligence.”

Join 1,000+ pioneering women and underrepresented technologists at the inaugural Women in Tech DC on May 15 - 16; the central meeting place for women in tech.
