About Women In Technology

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 female students in middle school, high school, and college 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.

Our team of more than 300 volunteers delivers professional development and networking opportunities to our more than 3,000 professionals and programs at no charge to more than 1,500 students.

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.

Our Journey

1992
Our Beginning

1992 – WIT is founded

Founded in 1992, Women In Technology (WIT) empowers girls and women at every stage of their STEAM careers – from the classroom to the boardroom. WIT utilizes its programs, connections, volunteer opportunities and events to enable the development of the WIT community through recognition, thought leadership and foundation efforts. WIT is driven to help women and girls write their own stories of success throughout the full lifecycle of their careers and continued evolution as STEAM leaders in Georgia.

1995 – Creation of the executive auction now known as WIT Connect

WIT Connect is one of Atlanta’s most engaging and interactive events for STEAM leaders! For the past 20+ years we’ve auctioned off some of Atlanta’s most highly visible technology executives and raised over $3.2 million to support the development of young girls and the advancement of women in STEAM. 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. At this event, we highlight our WIT Girls and WIT Campus young women along with the impact WIT programs has had on their advancement in STEAM, which includes scholarship awards.

WIT Careers supports women who are already in technology by offering professional development programs that provide women in STEAM fields with the tools and strategies necessary to support them in their STEAM journeys.

2003 – WIT Girls program is launched

According to the National Science Foundation, America lags behind other nations in the number of students majoring in science and engineering at colleges and universities.
