About this Event

The Information’s WTF Summit for Women in Tech, Media and Finance

We are thrilled to announce that the Information’s 2020 WTF Summit is pivoting to a virtual format for 2020. Due to ongoing concern around COVID-19 and public gatherings, we have made the decision to make all of the fantastic content available in an online format so attendees can participate from wherever!

The Information's WTF is an intimate summit and ongoing membership community of women from the tech, media and finance industries.

This year's WTF Summit will convene about 200 women and is a can’t-miss event for anyone who wants to build connections between New York and Silicon Valley.

By including a cross-section of executives and leaders from both coasts and across the tech, media and finance industries, this event and our membership community offer valuable networking opportunities.

At the 2020 event, we will interview industry leaders about the challenges and opportunities facing their respective sectors. Small breakout discussions provide an opportunity to meaningfully connect to other attendees. And we'll have a fantastic networking opportunities (including quick-fire networking sessions) to assist with forming personal connections outside of the sessions.

"A well-balanced blend of planned agenda with enough time to network with colleagues from a range of business sectors. I especially appreciated the candor of the speakers and the high level of interactivity throughout the day. The day was packed, extremely well organized and had my mind buzzing at the end of it!"

- Diane Tryneski, Executive VP of Technology & Chief Digital Officer, HBO
