The next generation of mobile connectivity is expected to launch around the world by 2020. Why all the hype? Experts say the improvement in speed and capacity will be exponential, with significant impact on both consumers and organizations. Join NC TECH for a special session where experts from leading organizations and companies will explain and discuss what the 5G rollout will mean.
More than 300 are registered to attend the Women in Tech event this Friday, May 17 at the Wells Fargo Auditorium at Knight Theater in Charlotte.

We all grow as leaders when we hear from others about their experiences. In the opening presentation, Paula Guilfoyle, CEO + Co-Founder of Claim Leadership, will talk about Building Resilience During Challenging Times providing attendees with a simple, memorable formula and tools to transform any situation – and your life from stressful to successful for meaningful business results.

Our panel of distinguished leaders will discuss creative solutions and best practices to help companies optimally engage women at all stages of the pipeline as well as move the needle on advancing more women in tech into leadership roles. Our panelists will also share their perspectives on how meaningful change towards greater diversity and equity is realized in the workplace.
The Betsy Y. Justus NC TECH Founders Scholarship was established in memory of NC TECH's founding CEO. Following her passing in the summer of 2011, NC TECH launched a scholarship to support young women in North Carolina who are pursuing an academic and career path in the areas of Technology or Engineering. Every year, two students will be selected to receive a $4,000 scholarship ($1,000 per year) and a personal computer provided by Lenovo.
Deadline to apply is May 31
