The Women in Tech San Diego Community
Empowering Women in the IT World
The WIT Network is a community of professionals across the world that believe in making it easier for women to imagine, begin and develop a career in IT.
We understand the challenges women face as they pursue careers in an industry that is too often dominated by male voices. This community is to help us overcome barriers too big to overcome individually. Our passions are our driving force: respect, support, empowerment, education, and integrity.
In San Diego, our chapter is co-chaired by Tina Rountree, Director of Sales, Managed Solution, and Jennifer Benedict, Account Executive, Managed Solution. Learn more about these ladies below!
