1888 Press Release - "Collective Action", the theme of the Summit this year, is to drive growth and acceleration for your business and career ambitions by creating access through the powerful contributing community.
Redmond: Women in Cloud (WiC), a community-led economic development initiative supporting and promoting the growth of women in technology and entrepreneurial ventures, is hosting the annual Women in Cloud Summit 2020 at Microsoft Conference Center - Building 33, Redmond, Washington on January 25, 2020.
Women in Cloud Summit 2020 focuses on why ‘collective action’ is important to draw light on the importance of economic inclusion in the tech industry to close the gender gap and allow for more diverse concept creation. Women are the key drivers of the economy; by accessing the resources needed to launch and sustain businesses, WiC will address the economic inclusion to co-develop and co-market solutions by providing women the tools, knowledge, and networks they need to build a successful cloud business and reach their full potential.
Women are key drivers of economic growth and WiC continues to draw light on the importance of inclusion in the tech industry to close the gender gap and allow for more diverse concept creation. This year the summit will focus on action - one of the primary pillars of Women in Cloud.

1. Spread the message and inspire the global community to take collective action to advance gender equality in all businesses
2. Bring together over 1,500 powerful, leading women in tech, aimed at building and growing cloud-based businesses.
3. Designing new innovations in partnership with United Nations Equals to provide creative space to innovate ideas leveraging cloud technologies
4. Mastering personal leadership and cloud skills to give women access to personal and professional development to increase advancement
5. Connecting executives, policymakers, industry experts, and innovators to accelerate policies, ideas and resources to unlock economic opportunities
This year WiC has also added #AISolution2030 Innovation Hub, CloudInnovateHER Pitch Challenge and Collective Action Lounge to the list of events to ensure maximum learning with great exposure. “Through the power of collective action, entrepreneurs, global leaders, policymakers and supporters of Women in Cloud will share an inspiring mission of enabling women-led tech entrepreneurs to capture $1 billion in economic opportunity by 2030,” says Chaitra Vedullapalli, Co-Founder & President of Women in Cloud.
The Women In Cloud initiative is focused on bringing global awareness and taking actions to address gender equality in entrepreneurship in the technology industry. In the last 18 months, WiC has seen significant success through building strategic partnerships and establishing a powerful network to create economic access for women.
Last year, Senator Patty Kuderer championed SR8602 which declared January 25th as “Women In Cloud Day.” In addition, WiC strategically partnered with Microsoft to expand in eight countries to create access and acceleration for women tech entrepreneurs on a global scale.
