WiCS Con is a 1.5-day conference for CS students who identify as women, trans, non-binary, or gender nonconforming. This year, WiCS Con 2022 was open to high school students as well!

WiCS Con 2022 ran on Friday, January 21 (4:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. ET) and Saturday, January 22 (10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET).

The conference program included sessions on hot topics in computing (tech talks, workshops), the hiring process (resume critiques, interview prep, negotiating contracts), careers in computing (Break into ….), panels and mentoring circles, and more. Sessions were led by engineers and mentors from high-tech companies, WiCS, and students.

The conference was held online, but there were plenty of opportunities to network with other conference attendees. See the preliminary conference schedule below, and read details about the different sessions.
