Join WITI in Silicon Valley

Wearables and fitness bands are now big business. Users are consuming content through tablets, phones, computers and even watches. All of this incredible growth is creating many opportunities for partnerships between the technology, sports and entertainment worlds.

At the WITI Sports, Entertainment and Technology Symposium, you will hear from the key players who are leading the way for women in these industries.

The event consists of sessions showcasing women's individual achievements, and sharing experiences in various segments of the sports industry at both the technology and professional executive levels. The emphasis will be on personal and professional insights, mentorship, and the empowerment of women in sports and technology!
