At LumApps, we believe women have a crucial role to play in the tech industry and we do our best to ensure equal opportunity. It was high time for us to get involved in the movement.
What is ChickTech and ACT-W?
LumApps hires talented women in all our teams, whether it’s Product Design, Engineering, Sales or Marketing. Even though we’ve been walking the walk, it’s now time for LumApps to take on a speaking role for women in tech.
We’ve decided to participate in the next ACT-W National 2018 in Phoenix, AZ, and partnered with ChickTech to organize our sponsorship and attendance.
The national organization ChickTech is presenting the conference this year. Founded in 2012 and with multiple chapters across the United States, this association is dedicated to supporting and educating everyone in the technology industry, especially those who identify as women. It’s both a career and a support network!
As for ACT-W, in their own words: “The ACT-W, Advancing the Careers of Technical Women, Conference is an engaging event where talented women and supporters can build skills, grow their community, and accelerate their career path by connecting with companies that truly fit them best.”
