Opening Issues we face today
The technology industry has a tremendous impact on society and individuals. For the last several decades, women have been greatly under-represented among the teams and leaders bringing new technologies to market. This has led to biased design in new technologies, even though women are among half of the population.
WHY getWITit: No membership cost – inclusive – nonprofit
The getWITit mission is to build a supportive environment where women of all backgrounds flourish in technology and to create opportunities for women to inspire others.
getWITit fosters an environment that inspires diverse thought within technology by building passionate communities to promote change. We aspire to cultivate local community engagement so that women can sustain, excel, and advance in technology careers. The foundation of our organization is the annual chapter conferences which provide new technology content while promoting empowerment and the inclusion of women in technology. Our chapters share ideas and create support systems through local events to ignite new relationships.
