"I cannot thank these leaders enough for all they do to continually support WIT," says Penny Collins WIT President and CEO. "With this being our first virtual fundraising event, we could not ask for better executives and leaders to be our hosts, celebrate our scholarship winners and further talk about the importance of WIT."

Since its inception, WIT Connect has gathered nearly 800 of Atlanta's top executives to raise more than $3.2 million to support the development of young girls and the advancement of women in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM).

Each year, before the program, WIT hosts a special VIP Reception for invited WIT Connect guests and C-Suite executives participating in the Executive Auction Experience. This year the VIP Networking reception will be held virtually.


The premier fundraising and networking event includes a unique executive auction experience which allows individuals to compete for exclusive time with top Atlanta C-Suite executives. Proceeds from the executive auction support WIT Girls and Campus – WIT's free educational programs for girls and young women. Music, silent auction, an exclusive VIP virtual networking reception and a celebration of our 2020 scholarship recipients round out the festivities for this special event.
