Join us for an evening of celebration at our first annual Gala, highlighting OKWIT’s 2017 accomplishments and honoring female leaders in Oklahoma!
We are excited to feature special guest Major General Rita Aragon, who will share her inspiring journey and lessons on how to be a fearless leader – no matter what industry you’re in.
Major General LaRita “Rita” A. Aragon is a retired United States Air National Guard two-star general who is currently serving as the Oklahoma Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Major General Aragon’s story is an inspiring journey of many “firsts”:
Not only has she been a passionate leader throughout her career, but she is also passionate about making a difference in the lives of Oklahomans. Major General Aragon serves on the boards of the Red Cross Chapter of Central Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Commission on the Status of Women and the Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma. She was named by The Journal Record as 2008 Woman of the Year, and in 2009, was inducted in the Oklahoma Women’s Hall of Fame.
In addition to featuring Major General Aragon as our keynote speaker, we will be honoring a female leader who has made a difference for countless women working in IT and continues to hold the door open.
This is an evening you won’t want to miss, and all are welcome!
