Supporting WIT…

Why did you start volunteering with WIT?

I am truly grateful for my experience volunteering with Women In Technology. I am passionate about Technology and the economic security that a Tech career can provide. Volunteering with WIT enables me to help the next generation of women find their passion and gain financial stability. I love that WIT programs are available at every stage of our lives starting with WIT Girls and carrying through to those of us in our mid and late careers. I’m proud to be able to contribute to the WIT mission.

What do you find most rewarding about volunteering with WIT?

Making new friendships and being able to give back and help WIT grow.

What is your favorite program / event within WIT?

Who can pick?! Love the energy at WOTY and Connect. Single Mothers’ graduation is inspirational and exciting to see these women starting their careers.
