Dear [Manager’s Name],
On May 9-12 the WomenTech Global Conference 2023 will be hosted virtually and I would like to attend. Right now, I can get a great deal on tickets (www.womentech.net/tickets).
During the conference, I will have the opportunity to connect with women in technology across the world and learn from industry leaders and peers from the tech community. I will also have the chance to contribute to the conference and to make an impact on growing the WomenTech community.
The event will offer online sessions from companies and organizations like Amazon, Etsy, Meta, Google, Harvard, IBM, Microsoft, Netflix, and Twitter, and cover engineering, product management, UX, and work-from-home related topics.
My participation will improve my skills, motivation, and performance. I'd be happy to share insights with the team, and discuss how we might implement key takeaways to position us as an employer of choice supporting diversity & inclusion.
