Women in Technology


Working Towards a Brighter Future


Our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. We realized that by working together we could overcome challenges faced by women much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY (WIT).Our programs and activities are designed to be a catalyst that helps community members reach their goals and fulfil their potential. Learn more about the positive impact we have and join us in bringing about positive change.
