We will focus on an application-rich once-in-a-lifetime development experience, for being fearless to get going to live your best life today. Get ready for the paradigm shift required to move forward, intentionally grow, and flourish.

Leveraging Shelly’s ARPO framework, this session will guide you on what it means to Acknowledge, Release, Power Up & Out.
The WICT Network: Greater Philadelphia Tech It Out (TIO) is an all-day conference intended to celebrate cutting-edge technology that impacts the telecommunications industry and to an extent, our lives.

This year’s Trending Technologies… Reshaping the Future event will showcase the topics below and more: 
  • Reshaping the future by Reshaping Your Now 
  • What is Esports? A deep dive into the two billion dollar industry 
  • 5G and the Metaverse: Driving Innovation through Collaboration 
  • Data Mesh 101: What it is and why you need it

The 2022 TIO event will be hosted as a hybrid event (both in-person and virtual streaming options), but attendance at Xfinity Live is encouraged! The in-person experience will include lunch, expert speakers, sponsor showcases, raffles and giveaways, as well as networking opportunities throughout the main event and the reception – which we have all missed over the past 2 years!

What do you love most about your job?
I love the people I work with the most. Over the years, I have worked with so many hardworking, intelligent and dedicated professionals. Without them I wouldn’t be able to successfully deliver my projects. I have built great relationships, which helped me bring our teams together through collaboration and to align on common goals of my organization. 
How have other women helped shape your career?
Starting from my college years I have met many accomplished women who shared their knowledge, wisdom and have been inspirational mentors to me throughout my career. Women who raised each other up and challenged each other through power of collaboration are truly the ones who helped boost my confidence and impacted my career in a positive way. I learned that women who support one another are far more successful in business. 
Outside of work, what's something you are passionate about?
I am a mother of two boys who are both into sports. My husband and I spend a lot of time at the hockey rinks and soccer stadiums, cheering for our boys. I love to travel and explore new places with my family. I am also very much into fitness and work out every day to stay fit and healthy for me and my family. 
What do you value most about your membership with The WICT Network?
WICT community gives me the opportunity to connect with amazing women in the industry and beyond. I am learning a lot through the great events WICT offers and the networking opportunities are priceless. WICT provides an incredible platform to grow as a leader, to give back and to inspire other women in the industry.
