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

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.

OKWIT OKC - The Enlightened Professional - Mentor Session with Brandy Semore @ The Hutch on Avondale
Use your Member ID to access tickets!   The Enlightened Professional – Let’s face it. Life is full and frenetic for a professional. While much is offered regarding life balance – and we all believe we need it – what is it we are truly striving for as human beings rather than human doings? Creating a professional life while maintaining oneself as a “whole” person can be challenging. This session mentor will facilitate a discussion on personal tools to achieve thriving through transitions (career and in life). These discussion topics may include creativity, communication, conflict management, leadership, finding your dream job, discovering your “place” or other soft skills by your request.   Please Note: Lunch will be provided by OKWIT. You must be an OKWIT Advocate Member or OKWIT Contributing Member to register. However, as one of these members – you may register for yourself plus one (Your Plus One does not have to be an OKWIT member). Seating is limited to 15, so be sure to register early.
