Who We Are
Oklahoma Women in Tech (OKWIT) is a 501(c)3 holding nonprofit organization of professionals in the technology industry with a determination to bridge the gap between genders in STEM fields.
We strive to better network and promote anyone who identifies as a woman within the tech industry across Oklahoma, while educating and encouraging young women to continue their interest and studies in STEM fields.
Who is a woman in technology?
- She works for a technology driven organization
- She is earning a degree in a STEM related field
- She holds a degree in a STEM related field
- Her career is simply STEM focused
She may be an engineer, a data analyst, a doctor, a math teacher, a project manager, an event coordinator, etc. The list goes on. There are more of us than many realize.
What We Do
We promote, advocate, and provide thought leadership for women working in technology.
We demonstrate that advancing women in STEM related fields help unite the workforce with the world at large by offering differing perspectives and relationships that are invaluable to the health and prosperity of any organization.
We help build mentorships and peer-relationships amongst women working in similar fields.
We host events dedicated to encouraging middle and high school students to consider pursuing a career in tech.
Our focus is on helping women grow into leadership roles. Maintaining longevity in the industry isn’t just about equality—it’s also about better business.
Studies show that companies with diverse leadership and teams have higher sales, more customers and larger market share, which they attribute to their ability to differentiate their business strategy and product development.
Let’s work together to further women’s impact on technology.
