Inspiration from the 2016 Women in Tech Summit

By Oct 07, 2016

Last weekend, 200 women gathered at The Frontier to build a network within the technology sector. Unfortunately, only 26% of jobs in technology are held by women. This not only means that we need to lift each other up and stick together, but also that we need to get the word out and encourage the next generation of women in technology. Thankfully, Triangle Tech Girlz is helping to do just that. TTG is largely sponsored by the Women in Technology Summit, which donates all proceeds to chapters of Tech Girlz across the country. This year, the summit raised $11,000 for the organization through their event held at The Frontier!

With so many amazing women gathered in one place, there were a flurry of words of wisdom and encouragement. Here are some of the best ones we heard:
