Program Adds Corporate Support to Nonprofit’s Mission to Support Women in Georgia’s Technology Community
Atlanta, GA – November 14, 2013 – The Atlanta-based non-profit association Women in Technology (WIT) announced that Dell is now a part of its Strategic Alliance program, a partner program designed to increase corporate involvement in the nonprofit’s mission to serve as passionate advocates for the support and development of women in technology careers in Georgia.
“Since becoming the presenting sponsor for our key fundraising event WIT Connect last year, Dell has proven to be an incredible partner for WIT,” said Monica Thornton, WIT’s executive director. “Not only have they continued to support WIT Connect, they have stayed involved with WIT throughout the year and demonstrated a strong commitment to our mission, both by staying active in the WIT community and by sharing their own programs that support women. Becoming Strategic Alliance partners is the natural next step, and we look forward to working with them for many more years to come.”
The Strategic Alliance program affords additional benefits and recognition to sponsors of WIT and WIT Foundation programs who sponsor at least two WIT or WIT Foundation events throughout the year. 17 companies with a presence in Georgia are now part of the program, including:
- Edge Solutions
- Goizueta Business School at Emory University
- Intercontinental Hotels Group
- Jabian Consulting
- Systems Evolution, Inc.
- The Coca-Cola Company
