WITI (Women in Technology International), the leading advocate for innovation, inclusivity and STEAM, is celebrating 30 years of supporting and fostering women in technology. Founded by Carolyn Leighton at a time when there were no organizations to support women in technology, WITI is now a powerhouse that women turn to for career enhancement and global support. Companies also rely on WITI to help create a pipeline for women in technology as well as building leaders and inclusive cultures.

In honor of the occasion, Rene Redwood (Advisor), David Leighton (President) and Parna Sarkar-Basu (VP) for WITI will ring the Closing Bell.
