Women Who Code Manila Tech Summit highlights the talent of women in our tech industry. We have more than 25 female speakers who will be sharing their experiences about best practices, new technologies, leadership, soft skills and more. This event was crafted to help you innovate, level up and grow in your tech career.
Women Who Code is a global non-profit organization and the largest and most active community dedicated to inspiring women to excel in their tech careers. We have more than 167,000 members all over the world and have networks in over 60 cities in 20 different countries.

In Manila, we have more than 1900 members and held more than 200 events in less than 2 years. Last November 2018, we’ve created a hackathon, where more than 100 women participated and more than 200 people attended. This has been the biggest women hackathon in the Philippines.
