Imagine having the opportunity to spend exclusive time with a leading technology executive, learning what’s made them successful and what’s next in the innovation of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). That’s exactly what winners of the 2017 Women in Technology’s WIT Connect Executive Auction will have the opportunity to do, and this auction is one of the reasons WIT Connect, now in its 23rd year, is one of Atlanta’s premier fundraising and networking events.
This year’s WIT Connect will be held on Thursday, June 15 at the Coca-Cola Roxy located in the new SunTrust Park in The Battery Atlanta. Over the past 25 years, WIT has enlisted the time and talents of some of Atlanta’s best and brightest tech executives for the highlight of the evening, the Executive Auction. Individuals and teams of executives offer the highest bidders the opportunity to spend time doing in-depth networking. Over time, WIT Connect’s Executive Auction has raised more than $2 million to support WIT’s mission to progress the role of women in the STEM fields and to improve STEM education and exposure opportunities for girls. A complete list of companies included in this year’s executive auction can be found here.
This year’s WIT Connect also features Keynote Speaker: Kathryn Finney. Named by Inc. Magazine as one of the tech industry’s most influential women, Finney is known as a visionary, entrepreneur, advocate, writer, and correspondent.
