WIT Wisconsin changing the future of IT

The mission of Women in Technology Wisconsin is to attract, grow and retain women of all ages in technology-related careers. 

WIT collaborates with professionals, companies, and communities to help women in technology of all ages and stages -- from the classroom to the boardroom — by providing a variety of leadership development, technology education, networking, and mentoring opportunities for women and girls.


The three main pillars of focus for our non-profit are WIT@work, WITonCampus, and WIT4girls.
