Young Professionals Special Interest Group

Mission and Overview:

The Women in Technology Young Professionals SIG welcomes all ages and focuses on the needs of women in the first 10 years of their career as they ascend the professional ladder into leadership positions. This group focuses on the unique professional needs of young professional women seeking to navigate all aspects of tech. Not to mention, we think working in tech should be fun and rewarding!

We offer networking, mentoring and educational opportunities focused on helping WIT members navigate the challenges of a new professional career and preparing members for a long, happy and successful career.

We've divided the year into trimesters and each trimester is themed and will consist of at least a happy hour, a professional development event, and a social event. Members are encouraged to join committees to help organize these and any other programs throughout the term. We have some really great programming already in the works but also welcome ideas for other events. Please join us!!

Upcoming Events:

The theme for the first trimester was Non Traditional Tech! Featuring the following events.

The theme of the second trimester was Power Plays! Featuring the following events:
