Special APAC Track for Asia/Pacific Women in Tech

By popular demand from women in technology colleagues in the Asia/Pacific (APAC) community, the Summit this year offers a dedicated APAC focus to WITI’s 27th Annual Summit, with the theme of Stories of Growth. Click here for more details on the WITI APAC Track.

Through the Carolyn Leighton Scholarships (established to honor the vision of Carolyn Leighton and her work in building out this global sisterhood over the last 30 years), WITI hopes to provide exposure to young leaders – women in tech and male allies – to current industry conversations and give access to relatable role models. Financial ability shouldn’t be a deterrent to women’s careers and hence, by providing an avenue for women to build relationships with fellow women in tech, we are taking a step towards realizing Carolyn’s vision of ‘No woman stands alone‘.

This year, students in APAC will receive a 100% scholarship to attend WITI’s 27th Annual Global Summit through the Carolyn Leighton Scholarships. Click here to learn more and apply.
