About the Symposium
The EDGE in Tech Symposium is hosted by the EDGE in Tech Initiative at UC Berkeley. Our flagship annual event presents the experiences of women and non-binary-identifying individuals within a growing tech sector. In addition to the panels and discussion, the event also recognizes those who embody, encourage, and promote the inclusion of women and Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) in technology through the EDGE in Tech Athena Awards.
