COVID-19 Update

With the safety of you, your families, and our communities as our top priority, all scheduled OKWIT events for March and April are canceled, and our Spring Retreat is postponed until further notice.


As of March 15th, we are following the CDC guidance which recommends canceling any events with 50 or more people for eight weeks. The threat of COVID-19 spread is being taken very seriously by OKWIT leadership, and we will continue to monitor the situation to make decisions for future events.


During this uncertain time, we are working to provide new remote ways to engage our membership and youth. Please keep in touch with us through our social media, website, and membership newsletters as we announce online activities to foster interaction and education from your homes.


As always, thank you for your support and participation in Oklahoma Women in Technology. Our hearts and thoughts are with all of you.

Do you have a future in Technology? Oklahoma Women in Technology invites OKC career exploring women (HS graduates + High School students grades 10-12) to join us for day filled with fun activities, great speakers, inspiring local women in Tech, and SO MANY great resources all in 1 place to openly explore your possible future in TECHNOLOGY. This event is FREE thanks to our generous sponsors. This half day event is aimed to educate career exploring women in Oklahoma about the breadth of career opportunities in STEM and specifically the Technology field. We want to inspire diverse enrollment into the array of technology training programs available to them, and to cheer their participation in the IT workforce. In recognition of the ongoing gender gap in IT within the classroom and in the workforce, we specifically market this event to women who are either a HS graduate OR a high school student (grades 10-12). While this event targets women, we openly welcome men who want to engage in the conversation and contribute to a more equitable, diverse society. 2018 EVENT SCHEDULE 7:30AM-8:15AM (CHECK-IN, CHANGE INTO EVENT T-SHIRT, GRAB A SNACK, START YOUR NETWORKING BINGO AND OR CHECK OUT THE EDUCATION FAIR) 8:15AM (OPENING REMARKS) 8:30AM-NOON (BREAKOUT SESSIONS, KEYNOTE SPEAKER, NETWORKING BINGO, EDUCATION FAIR) 12-1:30PM – (LUNCH SERVED, CLOSING REMARKS, PARTICIPANTS DISMISSED)
