Joining forces and uplifting voices to drive talent equity that advances Idaho's technology future.
The first step in our journey is helping you start your own.
Our Mentorship Circles are curated to support & inspire women at any stage of their careers. Whether it’s enlightening young girls to new possibilities in tech, uplifting women ready to make a career change, or empowering individuals currently reaching for that next rung in their ladder, we are determined to support you. When it comes to women in tech, “seeing is believing”.
Our philosophy is simple: Connecting over "Networking"
iWIT works to create multiple opportunities for business connection and growth throughout the Treasure Valley, regardless of career stage, age, industry, or role. These events are meant to help you fully embrace the power of a "handshake & hello", as your next big break could be waiting right around the corner!
Allies to the Rescue
Technology is diverse; as is our team.
Idaho is our home, and the future of its technology scene is of our highest importance. Therefore we believe that cultural shifts, individual empowerment, and livability are essential factors to foster growth in the Treasure Valley.
As iWIT continues to grow, we hope to grow our team and partnerships that align with this mission.
Communication and Education
We spread the word on best practices to support and challenge industry leaders, women-in-tech groups, and educators to achieve their goals.
We value and affirm a safe and supportive environment for women, girls, and those who have historically been under-included; we include allies appropriately.
Data and Impact
Following a logic model, we assess outcomes to continuously learn and improve. *NOTE: What is the mechanism?
We bring ALL women together along the journey to fulfilling technology careers - individuals, industry, women-in-tech groups, educations, research, invetment and government.
