ELA CONF 2017 - Friday, October 24,25, 2017
The 2017 ELA Conference in Philly will be Oct 27,28 at Gershman Hall at the University of Arts in Philadelphia. http://elaconf.com
E.L.A. is short for Empowerment, Leadership, Action.
Not just another Womens Conference, but an annual conference that drives to support Women in Tech.
A major supporter is GDI Girls Develop It , who recognize that support beyond STEM academies in the public schools is needed, and that gender distinctions have little importance in the grand scheme of good ideas.
In fact, a founder of GDI is the keynote speaker.

One innovative area to look at is their "Lunch Table Topics and Moderators" at their conference. That sounds like a cool way to delve into different subjects.
And the free-wheeling AMA ( Ask Me Anything ) can open up a lot of honest conversations.
