WiT was founded in 1997 with the support of just 10 women. The association has now grown to over 5500 members and affiliates with ponsorship from organisations such as University of Queensland, Origin Energy, Queensland Government, QUT, Griffith University and others.
In 2005 WiT launched the Life Sciences and ICT Committees, separate streams established to cater to the needs of the organisation’s increasingly diverse membership. WiT delivers a range of programs for women of all career levels whether they are starting out or looking to extend themselves at a more senior level.
WiT is an icon in the industry to many women and represents the interests of all women in the fields of Information Technology and Life Sciences technology.
WiT is one of the leading technology industry associations for women in Australia. WiT is also the first technology industry association to bring together members from diverse technology disciplines. WiT prides itself on its innovative and flexible program of activities, including:
- Round table discussion groups
- Major networking events
