ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT HAS CLOSED.
Please contact Erin Whitaker, erin.whitaker@technologycouncil.com, for late registration.


The We Build Tech Summit is focused on connecting and engaging Middle Tennessee's tech professionals and tech educators to increase alignment, understanding, and partnership between those communities. With almost 2,000 jobs open in technology in Middle TN today, and over 500,000 nationally, strong connections between education and employment are critical to our economic future. To do this, the education providers at both the K12 and postsecondary levels need better connections to technology professionals to understand the skills and tools their students will need. Conversely, employers must understand how these education systems operate to build the best partnerships possible. 

From 8am - 12pm, tech educators will participate in two professional development sessions. Tech professionals will arrive at 11:30am to check-in, and at 12pm both groups will have lunch together and listen to the keynote speech. Following lunch there will be panel discussion and structured networking for tech educators and tech professionals to do together.
