A great time to Join WiTT
March – WiTT Social Mixer
Date: Tuesday, March 25, 2014
Time: 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Location: Bar Louie – 314 11th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203

This is a relaxed, unstructured gathering for local women in the technology industry (perhaps a few, brave men as well). This isn’t our typical, educational event, but mixers are usually a favorite! Show up with a smile on your face, business cards in hand, and come ready to have a beverage, and relax. Map for Bar Louie.

Looking for a few good women – Lipscomb/ WiTT Mentoring Program
WiTT is working with Lipscomb to develop an enduring mentoring program. We are looking for women who work in the IT space to partner up with a female student from Lipscomb who is pursuing a degree and soon a career in the same field you work in.
This is a great way to help encourage women to pursue a career path in Technology. Please notify Kate Colson (email@example.com) with any interest or questions you may have about the program.
