Girls in Tech’s Catalyst Conference

Who run the world? Do we even need to say it? But we’re talking about women who actually run the world, or at least some pretty impressive ventures within it. For the first time, downtown Phoenix will host the Girls in Tech’s Catalyst Conference starting on Sunday, April 26, at 1 p.m. at Hotel Palomar, Two East Jefferson Street. And the lineup of speakers includes national female figures and local ladies, like founder of CO+HOOTS Jenny Poon and Curator of Code at Axosoft Tania Katan. These powerful, innovative women will lead sessions in everything from technology and entrepreneurship to leadership and diversity. Tickets are $225 for general admission, but a discount code is available on the conference’s Facebook page. Get your ticket and more information at
