SIM Women Summit

Join Us! 

Our 8th national meeting, the SIM Women Leadership Summit, will be held on May 9, 2023, at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Chicago, IL. This year’s theme is, “Question Everything!” 

Everything we know should be questioned - personally and professionally. When looking at your organization, what would you design differently if you could build it all over again? Are you excited about where your company is going? What technology sparks your interest? 

When was the last time you checked in with yourself and your values? Has your purpose altered as you've navigated through your career? What cultural changes do you want to enact across your organization?

Do you have a deliberate career plan that will get you to your next step? Can you be successful in your current company? Are you happy?

The SIM Women Leadership Summit offers an amazing day of professional development and networking plus thought leadership and solutions across these tracks: EXEMPLIFY, EMPOWER, and EDUCATE: Exemplify is for female C-suite leaders looking to grow beyond their current roles. Empower is for those making their way up the ranks targeting the C-suite. Educate is our split track for those who wish to learn – either greater technical depth or more on cultivating talent, mentoring, and STEM Outreach.

Our Summit Council has curated topics relevant to technology leaders today along with a strong programming focus on diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging. This is your opportunity to engage and energize both yourself and your career! 

We can accommodate ~300 attendees in person and an additional 500 attendees at the SIM Women Virtual Summit which will air May 24th. The Virtual Summit will contain live speakers in addition to recordings from the Leadership Summit with Live Q&A.

Don't miss out!!!
