OKWIT meets monthly on the last week of the month in Tulsa and OKC.

Our events include leadership luncheons, mentoring circles, networking socials, workshops and more. 

COVID-19 UPDATE

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.
