Celebrating 30 Years of
Empowering women in Steam

Women in Technology (WIT) empowers girls and women to excel in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM) from the classroom to the boardroom. We do this by providing our community with education, exposure and experience.  By sharing the stories of successful professionals across the STEAM fields, we encourage all generations of girls and women to write their future.

WIT is committed to making Georgia the state with the highest percentage of women in the STEAM workforce by providing opportunities that champion women throughout their education and career.

We provide our WIT community with STEAM education, exposure and experience.  

Testimonials

“Volunteering for WIT is the least I can do to repay this amazing organization for its huge impact in my life. As a female from the Middle East, my dream to become a computer engineer was met with many challenges and no support—until I found WIT. Through them, I was able to complete my bachelor’s degree and complete an internship with Fiserv. WIT helped me to believe in myself, and I want to share that inspiration with others.”

  • Sandy Ali, WIT YoPros Volunteer

“I can not adequately convey my appreciation for the WIT organization and their incredible volunteers who have supported both of my daughters over the past 10 years. Both of my girls loved the various events they attended: Behind the Scenes, Immersion, Job Shadow. Mentoring, and more. They learned a lot, but it was the encouragement, enthusiasm, and support of WIT that meant the most to both the girls and to us as parents. “

  • Debbie G, WIT Girls Parent

“I am very thankful that I had opportunities in my life, whether through mentors, scholarships, or extracurricular activities, that enabled me to pursue my passions in STEAM. When I moved to Atlanta and learned about WIT, I knew it was my opportunity to pay it forward to the many young women who may be looking for the same opportunities I also looked for at their ages. I continue to volunteer at WIT because I see the difference it makes for these young women, specifically through my time at WIT Campus, where I see the impact our scholarships, connections, and community has made for students pursuing an education and career in STEAM. I am honored to be a part of the WIT community.”

  • Claudia Bove, WIT Campus Volunteer

“I have been volunteering with WIT for almost 2 years. WIT is not only about Women, but also about Courage, Hope, Improvements and Love. After joining WIT this on-going revolution, I witnessed how fast I grow, how much power and motivation I gained, got to know so many inspirational role models in all kinds of areas and how they became such wonderful people. WIT is THE MOTIVATION!”

WIT Connect is one of the premier fundraising and networking events of the year with over 700 top level executives in the technology field. In addition to our highly anticipated executive auction, it is also an evening where we focus on the mission of WIT.
