Founder and CEO Women in Tech®

“When founding Women in Tech 4 years ago, my purpose was to create an action-driven community committed to closing the gender gap and helping women embrace technology. We have worked ever since to create impact through programs, focusing on 4 major pillars: Education, Business, Digital Inclusion and Advocacy. More than a network, Women in Tech is today a vibrant Global Movement with over 170.000 members present in 6 continents, on a mission to empower 5 million women and girls in STEAM (Science Technology Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) by 2030.

It is with great pride that we are organizing our Women in Tech Global Summit in Paris the 30 & 31 May 2022 where we will gather our international community to convene, connect, debate and create concrete approaches to tackle gender inequality while celebrating HERoes who are shaping tomorrow.
Let us raise the ambition on gender parity and digital inclusion, for when women rise, we all rise.
I invite you to come and inspire and be inspired. Join us at this change-making event! “

I am Dr. Christyl Johnson, deputy director for technology and research investments at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in the state of Maryland in the United States, as well as Honorary President of Women in Tech® Global Summit. I am very excited to invite all of you to the 2022 Women in Tech Global Summit – “HERoes Shaping Tomorrow” – the 30 & 31 May 2022.
My personal journey has given me a passion for inspiring, encouraging and motivating the next generation of young STEM leaders who may one day join our NASA team and possibly become the first women to set foot on the Moon or join the team that establishes a habitat on Mars. As an advocate for women’s equality, I see initiatives like this global summit as a great opportunity to advance women in STEM careers, bridge the gender gap, be a catalyst for change, and recognize and celebrate female pioneers.
In 2019, I had the privilege of participating in the summit in Paris for the first time as a speaker. Now, coming back as the honorary president of Women in Tech, it gives me great pride to bring you this amazing lineup of keynote speakers, panel discussions, fireside chats, artistic performances and more from participants around the globe. I hope you enjoy, and take advantage of, all you can throughout the two-day summit.
Thank you for the role you play in shaping a bright future for all, and I look forward to being with all of you for this illustrious event.”
