Awards Description

Mission and Overview:

Annually, the Leadership Awards recognize and honor women professionals who have exemplified leadership while promoting the WIT mission of Advancing Women in Technology from the Classroom to the Boardroom.

In addition they stimulate professional growth of those they manage or mentor through their actions and encouragement.
