Sponsorship

Sponsoring the Empower IT Conference

The Empower IT Conference draws in women, under-represented groups, minorities and their allies in information technology. The majority of attendees are from MSU and the Big 10, and other industry peers and partners have attended.

Becoming a sponsor with onsite advertising ensures your marketing dollars go further and last longer and reach our attendees. The Empower IT community works hard to highlight those vendors that support the work of professionals in the IT field. Through sponsorship and advertising, you will enhance the experience of conference attendees all while increasing your company presence and networking opportunities.
