The Women in Technology Program works to highlight the contributions of women in the technology sector. By providing networking, educational, and professional development opportunities, the WIT Program advocates for the success of women working in technology-related fields.  

The OATUG WIT Program’s quarterly eLearning sessions cover a variety of topics, including management styles, developing resilience and confidence in work settings, addressing gender biases, and resources for time management and work-life balance.

The WIT Hub Community

The WIT Hub provides the opportunity for OATUG members to connect with one another. In this forum, members are able to ask questions, share engaging content, and provide helpful resources. OATUG staff will also share upcoming education and networking events related to the WIT Program. Join the WIT Community to participate in this dialogue and help us grow this new virtual community.


WIT is looking for women who can share their success stories with our community.  Do you have a story on surviving-to-thriving in your career path?  Have you boosted your leadership skills by leading a remote team or by volunteering?  How has being involved with a mentorship program affected your career?  What skills have you sharpened in the time spent in your role?  We want to hear your story!  

The Women in Technology Leadership Award

The WIT Leadership Award is an annual recognition, first presented in 2019 which honors one female OATUG member. Do you know anyone who has demonstrated strong leadership and a passion for helping other women excel in technology-related professions or fields of study?  Awards are presented annually at Ascend Conference.
