Women and Technology Summit: Innovation
"Innovation" will lead the topics at WITI's 2007 Women and Technology Summit
This year, WITI's 2007 Summit will feature innovators and talk about innovation. The first day of our conference will be an entire day of roundtables where we engage each other and feature innovative women who are pushing the envelope. To inspire each other, help each woman present make a decision to leave her "modesty" at home and, instead celebrate and share each other's accomplishments and solutions to pushing even bigger ideas out the door.
Why is innovation important to you? Why should you come to the conference? Given the rapid changes that are occurring on every front, we need to continuously question and challenge ourselves as to how we can do it better and differently. We want to get down to the serious business of stretching our minds, turning around our perspectives, coming up with solutions by interfacing with talented smart women in a variety of fields with expansive perspectives.
