Women Leading in Technology (WLiT) is a program of the Minnesota High Tech Association that works to promote, educate and empower women in technology across Minnesota.

Our goal is to Connect, Educate, and Reach Back.

The WLiT program is open to both men and women interested in promoting, educating and empowering women in technology. WLiT works to provide a network for women in technology across industry, level and line of business. We believe that no one stands alone – and strive to create community through the networking and conversations at our quarterly events ($30 reg fee per event).
