WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY ANNOUNCES VIP SPONSOR AND MC FOR WIT CONNECT 2019

State Farm and Dana Barrett join the lineup for the signature fundraising event supporting girls in STEAM 

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 Griffin, 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.
