A Note From WITI Founder Carolyn Leighton

I know many of us are very disappointed with the election results. On the positive side, we cannot diminish the fact that finally a woman was chosen to represent a major party for President and it was a very close race. People were very passionate on both sides. It is now more important than ever that we pull together and double down on our commitment to educate our colleagues about women's amazing capability to lead.

Whether it is a woman who did not get the job as President, or a woman who did not get chosen as an executive or CEO at their company, I want to let you know that WITI is committed more than ever to transform the world to understand the amazing contributions women can make as leaders.
