Outreach

Outreach

What can you do for WiTT? Any of these makes a difference…

  1. Big picture:  Tell our story (WiTT) to your clients, coworkers and friends- anyone you meet in IT.
  2. Be present: Bring a client/friend to a WiTT program or event.
  3. Passion: Tell people you know what is going on in the Nashville Technology community for women.
  4. Get involved: Give your time.
  5. Recognition: Tell others what a great job they are doing in the community.

Giving back to our community, as well as providing volunteer opportunities through common interest, provides motivation for mentor, educational and scholarship programs. Please contact WiTT for more information.
