BRINGING TECHNOLOGY INSIGHT TO ALL MINDS, NO BARRIERS.
Advancing Women In Tech (AWIT) was founded in 2017 to address the gender and diversity gaps we saw in tech management roles. As an organization, we believe that this gap largely exists due to lack of targeted, skills-based training, as well as executive mentorship. AWIT intends to empower women and other underrepresented groups to advance their technology insight and careers to become product and tech leaders.
Therefore, our two-pronged approach offers skills-based workshops in all of our AWIT chapters globally and virtually, as well as a comprehensive Ambassadors program to introduce high-achieving tech professionals to executive mentors. These mentorships can open doors to the next leadership opportunity.
Since its founding, AWIT has experienced 2,000 percent growth, to a membership of more than 16,000. There are chapters in Paris, Seattle, London, Berlin, Boston, and Washington DC, and is partnered with or sponsored by the Wharton School of Business, Workday, Redpoint, WeWork, LinkedIn, and others.
We partner with top companies to put on panelist series and workshops throughout the world to empower quality female and male tech leaders through equality of opportunity.
