This was my second year at the event and I could tell there was a strong, intentional effort to really take the event to the next level. We utilized more space, had more options and the same, valuable and genuine conversations from last year seemed to only be strengthened this year. I’m thrilled that so many interesting women chose to attend, as I found it to be a lovely day and I’m proud to be a part of this community of women.

Alex, ViralHog (2020)

As the Bozeman tech community continues to grow and diversify this conference is the best event in the area where I gain tangible ideas for improvement that can be implemented individually and within my team.

Jodi, Oracle (2020)

What a great opportunity to meet other women in Bozeman with the same passions!

Jazzlyn, Figure (2020)

What really struck me the most about this compared to other events that I have attended was the ease and flow of conversation at our table, outside next to the firetrucks and in the small groups. It may be a women thing, but wow. The conversations, tips, mutual acquaintances, common universities, etc. just flowed. That has not been the case nearly as much at [other Montana tech events]. This really surprised me!

Diane (2019)

I was buzzing all weekend after spending the day with such a supportive and inspiring group. … I loved the opportunity to share, collaborate, and learn at an event with only women. As much as I support inclusivity and appreciate men’s interest in female-framed events, I am very hopeful that we will have more gatherings with just women. Everyone seemed very comfortable and authentic and it was like nothing I have been a part of.

Caitlin (2019 speaker)

The workshops and talks were so rich and valuable—from learning a new productivity tool that also doubles as self-work (bullet journaling) to being inspired by a woman who is creating social change in a tangible way through tech (Cara) to just having wonderful conversations with wonderful women—I definitely left the day feeling like I now have a whole extra pile of tools and inspiration to carry into my life.

Sonia, Ess Effect Design (2020)

The value of network and connections are often overlooked by us in Montana who have to put a little more effort into overcoming physical distances and more scare populations of tech women. This conference is a super way to kick off some building of contacts and relations that grow innovation in so many ways.

Callie, Applied Materials (2020)

I didn’t know what to expect from this, but it was amazing! The speakers were professional, engaging, and the conversation was inspiring. I talked about what I heard and learned with anyone that would listen for days after. I can’t wait for next year!

Lindsey, Murdochs (2020)

This was such a wonderful way to get a group of hardworking women together to discuss shared experiences and how to improve our work environments and feel proud of our contributions to this community and beyond. I’ve already networked with three of the women from my table!

Small Group Discussions

Candid, honest discussion; loved hearing from so many perspectives.
