Thank you to all who came out for our annual Summer BBQ in July. We trust that you enjoyed reconnecting and relaxing at FireStone's on the Riverfront.

As summer winds down, Tech Forum and our partner organizations in the region are gearing up for fall with informative and engaging programs. We hope you will join us for the events below to acquire new knowledge, resources and connections.

Every day new data security flaws are discovered for the operating systems and programs that we use to control our lives and connected devices. And, with the proliferation of data in a connected world via the Internet of Things, more aspects of our lives and business are at risk of cybercrime.

However, there are ways to protect yourself and your business from harm. Tech Forum has assembled a panel of experts to guide you through current best practices and examples around data security governance, auditing, and insurance.

Women in scientific and engineering roles need more than technical skills for career success. We must demonstrate leadership, be effective communicators, develop collaborative teams, and be innovators.

The 2015 Inspiring Women in STEM Conference will feature educational and interactive sessions to help you develop these critical skills. Join us for this empowering professional development conference. You will be inspired by the journeys of extraordinary women leaders, including Dr. Gail Folena-Wasserman, Senior Vice President & Head, Biopharmaceutical Development of MedImmune, Rachel King, Co-founder and CEO of GlycoMimetics, and Dr. Nancy Targett, Acting President of the University of Delaware. You will also connect with peers to expand your professional network, and be introduced to volunteer opportunities to mentor the next generation.

Visit the conference website for the agenda with descriptions of all the sessions. Be sure to register by September 18th for discounted rates.
