Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/23/2015 -- Lesbians Who Tech, the globally renowned organization that focuses on connecting technology-focused women in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community, is hosting their second annual Summit in New York City, from October 1-4, 2015. The 4-day event is designed to emphasize the incredible women who cleared the path for more equality, as well as the newest generation of technological leaders. The City Director of the Lesbians Who Tech Philadelphia Chapter, CJ Bachmann, will be proudly attending the 2015 Summit to lend the City of Brotherly Love's support to the noteworthy occasion.

As 1SEO.com Digital Agency's VP of Operations, CJ Bachmann is truly excited for the opportunities for continued learning and growth. Attendees are encouraged to think of the New York Summit as part Hackathon, part Project Runway and part Shark Tank, as the events run the gamut of experiences and educational opportunities. The event starts out strong with a Tech Crawl on October 1, 2015, at 6pm, and only intensifies from there.

The Main Event on October 2, at NYU Law School, will not disappoint those participants looking to meet like-minded individuals while exploring various topics within the technology industry. The day offers more opportunities than most tech-lovers would find in 3 months, from the Glorious Morning Sessions to the Keynote Sessions the topics discussed will cover everything from the "Science of Creativity" and "Desegregation in the Age of 'Innovation'" to the highly-anticipated forums on "Artificial Intelligence Then and Now" and the "Basics of Protecting Your Intellectual Property."

The opportunities to learn and grow only compound from there, as every possible moment in-between the October 2nd talks and forums is filled with awe-inspiring opportunities for tech-lovers of every experience level. During the Lesbians Who Tech Entrepreneur Pitch Session, six women entrepreneurs will pitch their companies and apps in front of a panel of judges that includes both investors and entrepreneurs, presenting an amazing opportunity for potential stakeholders and hopeful innovators alike. At 3:45pm, interested attendees can join the IdeaHack session that opens a discussion about, and allows participators to present a game plan for, increasing the diversity at their company.

The fun continues the next day, October 3, as Lesbians Who Tech presents female techies with a Hackathon at the Bloomberg offices and the first-ever LWT hosted Design-a-thon, where the women can discuss the intersections between fashion, technology and entrepreneurship. These all-day events lead up perfectly to the Closing Brunch on Sunday, October 4, where attendees will hopefully part ways having made new connections, friends and tech-loving soulmates.

Lesbian Who Tech will be hosting the 2015 Summit at NYU Law School, in Washington Square Park, and interested members of the Philadelphia Chapter are encouraged to join CJ as she ventures to the sure-to-be-memorable event.
