The $1.3T technology industry and its 1.7M+ open jobs are one of the fastest growing industries in the country. Every community is racing to provide the opportunity to its citizens, and yet only 20% of women make up this talent pool.

GetWITit aims to create a catalyst for economic growth, by uniting communities around this missed opportunity and offering a framework to address this issue. When essential pillars of a community unite, we are able to bridge gaps and address the problem from all angles.

Both men, women, and everyone in between must be a part of the effort to understand the impacts women in technology can have for both economic growth and technological innovation.
