There are over 80 chapters in over 40 countries that provide a vast and varied network of events, contacts, and opportunities. The San Diego Chapter is co-chaired by Tina Rountree, Director of Sales at Managed Solution and Jennifer Benedict, Account Executive at Managed Solution.
Tina Rountree, Co-Chair of the San Diego WIT Network Chapter, stated, “I am beyond proud and happy of the knowledge, expertise and experience we had in the room today. In San Diego, we have a unique opportunity to establish an environment that will attract women in technology and bring them from imagining to developing a successful career in IT. We are open to suggestions and needs from our members and are looking forward to join forces with other female-led organizations in the region for a greater impact.”
At the kick off event, members experienced a demo of productivity tools and discussed current statistics about women in technology as well as as well as San Diego’s current state as it relates to women in the technology industry and how collaboration can be established in ways to promote welcoming tech environments for women. For example, women make up less than 20 percent of U.S. tech jobs, even though they make up more than half of the U.S. workforce (Evia).[/vc_column_text][grve_callout leader_text="yes" button_text="Join The WIT Network" button_shape="round" button_link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fthewitnetwork.com%2Fmembership%2F||target:%20_blank|"]Membership is free until November 1st, register now!
