Event Description

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.

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.

For the full list of speakers, see

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.
