The Women & Technology Conference, an initiative of TechConnectWV, addresses the under-representation of women in fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The conference aims to encourage women involved in technology education and research, private enterprises, the public sector, investing, and entrepreneurship.
West Virginia is known for many things – its people, its scenery, its natural resources and, now more than ever, an unbridled entrepreneurial spirit interested in creating opportunity here at home.
Our state’s innovation economy is beginning to blossom but more needs done to capitalize on the opportunities technology offers. West Virginia needs to engineer the foundation and framework upon which a thriving technology economy can be constructed. In essence, we need a roadmap that all stakeholders can follow that sets the course for growing our innovation economy.
