WITT is a student group at MITT comprised of women who came to MITT to pursue their common interest in trades and technology. Its goal is to provide women support and guidance on their paths toward successful careers in their chosen fields. Through monthly meetings and on-campus volunteer opportunities, WITT provides its members opportunities to network, share their knowledge, discuss current issues, offer support and resources, and gain workplace-relevant skills that will help them once they enter the workforce.

What we do

The group meets regularly throughout the school year. Women are invited to participate in monthly meetings and activities, including professional development opportunities and guest speakers. Throughout the year we also host a number of events that give WITT members the opportunity to gain leadership skills and make great connections with other women already working in the industry. After attending three meetings or events you will receive a participation certificate.

Upcoming events:

  • Tuesday, October 22
  • Friday, November 15 (Young Women’s Conference—possible WITT member volunteer opportunity)
  • Tuesday, November 19
  • Friday, December 13
