Networking Opportunities for Women Interested in Technology
Upstate Women & Technology (UWT) is a strong, supportive women’s networking group that promotes learning and friendship in the Upstate community. We welcome women of all ages, industries, and professions to develop their networks and learn about technology.
Guest speakers are invited each month to present on various topics of interest, including technical IT topics, new innovations within IT, general business topics, company culture and values, community development conversations, advice on career-building and inter-office interaction, and more. We also support local charitable causes like Safe Harbor and the Meyer Center for Special Children.
Our members have gone on to build long-lasting relationships and networks as a result of attending Upstate Women & Technology meetings, and we’d love to see you!
