Women in Technology (WIT) announced the WIT Girls and WIT Campus Scholarship Winners at its Virtual WIT Connect Gala, presented by State Farm, last night, Thursday, July 23rd.

Since its inception, WIT Connect has gathered nearly 800 of Atlanta’s top executives to raise more than $3.2 million to support the development of young girls and the advancement of women in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). WIT Connect is one of the premier fundraising and networking events of the year. In addition to our highly anticipated executive auction, it is also an evening where we focus on the mission of WIT. At this event, we highlight our WIT Girls and WIT Campus young women along with the impact WIT programs have had on their advancement in STEAM, which includes scholarship awards presented by top Atlanta corporate companies like WIT Sponsor ADP, who provided scholarships to three of our winners.

Our guiding values fuel our focus to keep people and their unique talents at the center of all we do.
