WAKE UP WITH WITI: How will you support diversity in 2021?
Objective: Wake up with WITI is a casual monthly networking opportunity. We will discuss the intersection of technology and life. Each session will have a high-level topic and an opportunity to intentionally network with others in the WITI Community.
During the February session, "How will you support diversity in 2021?", we will explore how to be intentional in the ways you support diversity from wherever you sit in an organization or in your personal life.
