Today, Dell is one of the world’s leading providers of technology to people and organizations of all sizes. We have achieved leadership from devices and the cloud to the data center, as we are now the leader in nine Gartner “Magic Quadrants” (leader in 9 of the 19 Magic Quadrant qualifications).

Women in Technology (WIT) passionately supports women at every stage of their STEM careers—from the classroom to the boardroom. We do this by telling the stories of successful women and by helping more women write their own. This takes place in a wide variety of formats—from educating middle and high school girls about the opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), to providing networking and education for professionals currently working in the field. With over 2,500 professionals attending our programs and events, over 500 students, and over 250 volunteers, WIT has become the largest, most active organization of its kind in the region.
