Executive Women in IT (EWIT) Community of Practice
The CEC’s EWIT community of practice (COP) was created for and is driven by female IT executive members who share a passion for advancing women in leadership.
This community of CEC members provides peer-advisory and opportunities for female leaders to raise their visibility within the profession and influence current and future generations of women in business. They work to inspire younger generations and grow the pipeline of diverse talent for organizations to leverage. The CEC’s EWIT COP includes a series of face-to-face meetings and webcasts, outreach and partnership programs, and insightful content developed by C-level executives.
