This year marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of Women in Telecoms & Technology. To celebrate this significant milestone, we are hosting a monthly series of online “fireside chats” with speakers from the earliest days of WiTT.
These events are for WiTT members only, but if there’s space we will allow a few guests. If you’re interested in attending please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Each Zoom call will begin at 6:00pm and end at approximately 7:15. These 20th Anniversary chats are meant to be fun and inspiring. Please join us with a glass of wine, or other preferred beverage, on the night.
On July 7th WiTT Founder Stephanie Liston chats with Carolyn Kimber, Secretary General, the Digital Policy Alliance; past Chairman of the Communications Management Association; and past board member of WiTT.
