Write Your Future

Women in Technology (WIT) empowers girls and women to excel in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM) from the classroom to the boardroom. We do this by providing female students in middle school, high school, and college with education, exposure and experience. By sharing the stories of successful professionals across the STEAM fields, we encourage all generations of girls and women to write their future. Our team of more than 300 volunteers delivers professional development and networking opportunities to our more than 3,000 professionals, and programs at no charge to more than 1,500 students. WIT is a 501©(3) non-profit organization committed to making Georgia the state with the highest percentage of women in the STEAM workforce by providing opportunities that champion women throughout their education and career.

WIT Connect 2019 Press Release

Atlanta, GA, May 14, 2019 — Women In Technology (WIT) today announced the
VIP Reception Sponsor and master of ceremonies (MC) for its signature
fundraising event, WIT Connect 2019, to be held on Thursday, June 20 at the
Georgia Aquarium.
“We are pleased to be the WIT Connect VIP Reception sponsor for the third year
in a row. State Farm has a passion for serving customers and giving back in
our communities. We understand the importance of advancing women in
STEAM and we are pleased to partner with WIT to make a difference in the
community,” said DeWayne Griffn, CPCU, Enterprise Technology Executive at
State Farm.
WIT is also proud to announce this year’s WIT Connect MC: TV & Radio Host
Dana Barrett. Dana is a former programmer who worked her way up to VP
before launching her media career. She currently hosts a daily current events focused
talk radio show on Atlanta’s iHeart station, Talk Radio 640 WGST
where she covers Tech each week in her Tech Tuesday segment.
“As a mother of a full-grown daughter and a former Tech entrepreneur, I know
how important it is to encourage young women and minorities to embrace
STEAM. The work WIT does for the community is essential for propelling girls
and women into STEAM-related careers. Equally as important is leveraging the
local Tech industry to support STEAM through a wonderful organization like
WIT,” Barrett said.
Since its inception, WIT Connect has gathered nearly 700 of Atlanta’s top
executives to raise more than $3.2 million to support the development of young
girls and the advancement of women in science, technology, engineering, arts
