Organization expands to include women involved in all areas of technology and formalizes member benefits and events
Philadelphia, PA – October 30, 2017 – Women in IT (WinIT) has rebranded to Women in Tech Leadership, a Philadelphia-based networking organization for current and future women leaders in all areas of technology. Women in Tech Leadership unveiled its new brand and website at its Signature Event, The State of Analytics, which took place at Clarivate Analytics on October 12. In addition to the rebrand, Women in Tech Leadership also rolled out its new membership program at the event.
Women in Tech Leadership was originally founded by John Rapchinski, CEO of Fidato Partners, in direct response to clients’ demand for more diversity in their tech leadership teams. Since its founding in 2015, Women in Tech Leadership has facilitated 5 events, allowing attendees to expand their knowledge, connect with their peer group, and build leadership skills needed for career growth and advancement. Over the past two and a half years, a diverse community of women have participated in the events, which have covered topics ranging from cyber security to advice on how to lead in a changing technology landscape.
As an introduction to its new Growth Events, which will be focused on professional growth, Women in Tech Leadership is offering free registration to their event on November 9th, The Brand Called You, where featured presenter, Orly Zeewy, will advise on how attendees can – and should – build a personal brand. Beginning in January 2018, the Growth Events will be for members only, while the Signature Events will be open to everyone.
“We are thrilled to unveil our new name, brand and membership program, all of which reflect our value as an organization,” noted Stephanie Cramp, Executive Director of Women in Tech. “We want to enable women in technology to learn, lead and connect with their peers in the industry, and provide the support they need to be successful.”
“Our goal with the new Women in Tech Leadership brand was to modernize the look and feel of the brand and better reflect the professionalism and positivity the organization provides for women who are part of the technology industry,” commented Michelle Pujadas, Founder and Co-CEO of Zer0 to 5ive, the firm that created the new brand and website, and Women in Tech Leadership board member.
