Women in Technology (WIT) today announced that sponsorship opportunities are now available for its popular WIT Connect event, to be held on Thursday, June 15 at the Coca-Cola Roxy at SunTrust Park. Connect is a unique executive auction and networking event attended by more than 600 of Atlanta’s top technology executives.

2017 marks 25 years of WIT being “passionate advocates for women and girls in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics),” according to Pat Hurston, WIT’s director of Resource Development. WIT’s mission is to progress the role of women in the tech industry and to improve STEM education opportunities for girls.

This year’s WIT Connect sponsor lineup is led by presenting sponsor NTT DATA Services. Sponsors of WIT Connect receive exclusive access to Georgia’s STEM leaders and community through a variety of benefits. Several sponsorship packages are currently available, including:

Gold Sponsor: $10,000
Silver Sponsor: $5,000

Table sponsorships, with seating for 10, are also available at $2,500.

WIT Connect is recognized as one of metro Atlanta’s premier fundraising and networking events, consistently boasting attendance of over 600 top level executives in the STEM fields. During Connect, WIT will also auction time with some of Atlanta’s most highly visible technology executives and host a raffle for a one-week Wind Jammer cruise for two (valued at $5,000) during the event.

“Attendees, sponsors and auction candidates return year after year to give back to the tech community, while strengthening and developing both existing and new client relationships,” Hurston said. Since its inception, WIT Connect has raised more than $2 million to support WIT’s strategic initiatives and programs, including WIT Girls, WIT Campus, and grants to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) focused nonprofits and local schools.
