Women in Technology Conference a huge success
Our 4th annual Women in Technology (WIT) Conference was a fantastic celebration of women across our industry coming together to accelerate for personal and professional success. Thanks again to our sponsors, luminaries and outstanding speakers. The conversation is continuing on social media using hashtag #WomenInTechCO. Feel free to chime in!
We captured lots of great photos from the day as well. View the photos here.
CTA is looking forward to continuing the great momentum of the conference with our WIT Series. If you would like to stay informed about upcoming WIT events, join the CTA group here. Stay tuned for a WIT brainstorming session in late July.

Recognition matters. Submit your nominations TODAY!
It is our favorite time of year – the time of year we start the process to recognize the best of technology in Colorado. Each year we get great nominations for our APEX Awards, and are always in search of the best ideas, leaders, projects and inspiring stories to lift the Colorado technology community to the next level.
But, nominations take time. Effort. And can be burdensome to get submitted. We get it. You are busy. And with the best of intentions, sometimes our best nominees never make it into the process. Well this year – we want to change that. We want to help the Colorado technology accelerate and thought it would be great to share why this is so important.
We have given the CTA website a face lift incorporating beautiful Colorado photography into the background and new navigation structure.
We have many creative and talented individuals in our membership and we would love to feature your photography as well. If you have images you would like to have considered or feedback on the site, please email Megan Ryan.
