Carolyn Leighton Scholarship to attend WITI’s Summit

Carolyn Leighton Scholarships have been established to honor the vision of Carolyn Leighton and her work in building out this global sisterhood over the last 30 years.

Through this scholarship, WITI hopes to provide exposure to young leaders – women in tech and male allies – to current industry conversations and give access to relatable role models. Financial ability shouldn’t be a deterrent to women’s careers and hence, by providing an avenue for women to build relationships with fellow women in tech, we are taking a step towards realizing Carolyn’s vision of ‘No woman stands alone‘.

This year, WITI will offer you 100% scholarship to attend the Digital Inclusivity summit if you are a student or unemployed at the moment.
