Women in Technology (WIT), the largest organization committed to empowering and educating women and girls about opportunities in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) in Georgia today is accepting sponsors for the annual Women of the Year Awards. The event celebrates female executives for their accomplishments as leaders in business, visionaries of STEAM and remarkable women who make a difference in the community.

The 18th annual WIT Women of the Year Awards will be held November 16, 2017 at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. This year’s awards are presented by NCR Corporation, a leader in omni-channel solutions that enable nearly 700 million transactions daily across retail, financial, travel, hospitality, telecom and technology and business.

This year 109 women from various industries were nominated for their commitment to excellence and leadership in business and the community. A select group of nominees were chosen by a distinguished group of judges to advance to the next stage of the awards process. All nominees hold business or leadership roles within a STEAM organization in Georgia or maintain STEAM leadership positions within a non-technology organization. Award winners will be announced at the WIT Awards in the following categories:

  • Large/Enterprise Organizations
  • Medium/Mid-Size Organizations and Educational Institutions
  • Small/Emerging Organizations
  • Non-Profit Organizations

In addition to honoring the women of the year, WIT also recognizes one special WIT girl as girl of the year for her exemplary achievement and dedication to STEAM education.

The event also features a special VIP reception before the event, sponsored by Cox Automotive, a leading provider of digital marketing, wholesale and e-commerce solutions across the automotive industry.

Top Atlanta companies gather each year at WIT’s Woman of the Year Awards to celebrate women and girls in STEAM. Sponsors utilize this marketing opportunity to reach key decision makers and to solidify their reputation as an advocate for women of all ages in Georgia’s STEAM community.

Sponsorship opportunities and individual tickets are available for purchase. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of the event, contact Pat Hurston at info@mywit.org or by phone at 470-823-3228 to secure a sponsorship.
