One of their flagship projects, Women in Tech Conference (WiTCon), was recognized as the Philippine’s first women in tech conference run by students that’s made for students. Recently, WiTCon has also been lauded as Peace Builder of the Year (Group Category) in the prestigious 2019 Young SDG Champion Awards given by Global Institute for Youth Development.

WiTCon is a one-day event that aims to expose students and educators to the wide array of research and achievements of Philippine women in tech. The event’s purpose is to inspire future generations of technologists to help close the gender gap and use innovation to make a difference in society. With speakers from various tech companies and workshops that give participants a peek into tech fields that they perhaps did not know existed, WiTCon doesn’t just aim to break glass ceilings, but instead transform the field of tech. This event is open to EVERYONE!
