The WIT Awards Gala celebrates female visionaries of STEAM, groundbreakers in business and remarkable leaders who make a difference in their workplace and community.

This is Cox Enterprises’ fourth year as the VIP Sponsor of the Women of the Year Awards and Infor’s second year as the After Party Sponsor.

“Cox is proud to join in this celebration of current and future leaders in STEAM,” said Maury Wolfe, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility and Social impact at Cox Enterprises. “The work of Women In Technology aligns perfectly with Cox’s goal to empower 34 million people to live more prosperous lives by 2034, and we’re thrilled to celebrate these visionary women and girls as they continue to make a profound impact on our communities.”

At Infor, we are dedicated to creating and nurturing an inclusive and diverse culture where every employee can reach their full potential. We greatly value our partnership with WIT in ensuring women have access and opportunity in the technology field. We are proud to sponsor this year’s After Party as we join WIT in celebrating this year’s nominees and winners and their accomplishments in the field of technology,” said Glynis Lee, VP – Inclusion, Community, and HR Technology

In speaking about both organizations, Penny Collins, WIT President and CEO said, “The partnerships with both Cox Enterprises and Infor are impactful. Cox Enterprises is a company focused on being an employer of choice for women which speaks straight to our values. In addition, Infor is working to empower women at all levels. We are grateful to have both organizations as sponsors once more,” said Penny Collins, WIT President and CEO.
