MILWAUKEE, WI -- FEB 1, 2020 -- Women in Technology, Wisconsin, Inc. (WIT), a non-profit organization aiming to attract, grow and retain women of all ages in technology-related careers, is expanding to a new region in Milwaukee! The organization focuses on collaborating with Wisconsin 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.
At a January WIT meeting in Appleton, WIT President Adrienne Hartman announced to attendees that the organization’s fifth season will continue to focus on growth and Greater Milwaukee/Southeast WI is the ideal fit for the organization’s next region.
"Milwaukee has made significant strides to position itself as the place for tech and start-up growth for 2020 and beyond. Milwaukee’s energy and the tech community’s goal to double the local tech workforce by 2025 is remarkable. We are glad to have WIT Wisconsin there to support that goal and to support the women of the region," Hartman said.
The new Milwaukee focus elevates WIT’s reach to three regions – Northeast WI, South Central WI, and Southeast WI. Since WIT’s founding in 2014, it has impacted more than 13,000 students and a countless number of professionals.
“Through education, training, and mentorship, we want to empower our members to change the current status quo in the industry and leave their mark on the thriving Milwaukee tech scene and beyond.”
