  • THIS IS THE AGENDA PAGE First, we’ll talk about women’s growth in education and the workplace, but the disparities that exists with respect to IT fields and to men. Next, we’ll introduce you to WITI…who it is and what it does. Then we’ll talk about how WITI interacts with the business community. Finally, we’ll talk about the availability of sponsorships and how your company can profit by a strong association with WITI.
