WITI's 2020 Digital Inclusivity Summit:

Reinventing Our Future

Look Ahead with WITI this December

Arguably, 2020 has been the most difficult year any of us has lived through. Join us for WITI’s Digital Inclusivity Virtual Summit, December 8-11, where we will marshall our forces and prepare to emerge stronger than ever in 2021.

Because in spite of – or perhaps because of – the inconceivable challenges we’ve had to face, necessity has forced us to think differently – to be resilient, and to find new ways of getting things done – to dig deeper into our creative mentalities and create workarounds – to integrate technology into our everyday lives more than we ever imagined.

This Year’s Speakers Include:

 – Michelle Bailey, GVP/GM & Research Fellow, IDC
 – John Bates, CEO, Executive Speaking Success
 – Rhonda Childress, Vice President and IBM Fellow – GTS Data Security and Privacy Officer, IBM
 – Karen Cone, Venture Partner, Mastersfund
– Connie Guglielmo
, Editor-in-Chief, CNET
 – Bryce Johnson, Inclusive Lead, Microsoft Devices, Microsoft
 – Rene Redwood, CEO, Redwood Enterprise
 – Debra Ruh, CEO & Founder, Ruh Global Impact
 – Joy Tan, Senior Vice President, Public Affairs, Huawei Technologies
 – Jason Thompson, VP/Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Western Governors University
Kameelah Benjamin-Fuller, PTC, Chief Diversity Officer & Corporate Social Responsibility Leader
