WITI 25th Anniversary & Women in Tech Summit

The WITI Summit is the annual gathering of tech-savvy women, held in the heart of Silicon Valley. Executive women, entrepreneurs, and technology thought leaders from around the world converge to collaborate on innovative solutions to common business challenges; explore new business opportunities that underscore how technology is powering change; and build and expand strong connections in a welcoming networking environment of women committed to helping each other succeed.

The WITI Hall of Fame was established in 1996 to recognize, honor, and promote the outstanding contributions women make to the scientific and technological communities that improve and evolve our society. Join us Monday, June 6, 2016, as we honor key leaders in science and technology at the 21st Annual WITI Hall of Fame Awards Dinner. Nominations close March 1st.
