It's Time to Become a WOMANager! 

Ready to grow your career into a management position?  Do you have ambitions to move into a leadership role?  Then join us for our inaugural WOMANagement Conference where we will inspire, educate, and provide mentoring opportunities for our members and guests from around the globe. The WIT Network is pleased to present our new flagship WOMANagement programming to encourage more gender-focused management teams.

Join us if you:

  • want to explore best practices and the most important attributes of successful managers
  • have a keen interest and ambition to rise to your first manager position
  • are a mentor and/or ally who wants to help shift the gender imbalance at the manager table
  • are a company who is focused on a more balanced gender approach to your managers 

We hope to see you at our inaugural WOMANagement virtual conference hosted by The WIT Network.

Our conference is an opportunity to educate, inform, and inspire women who have ambitions to grow their careers into management and leadership. It's time for more women to be at board table and in the C-Suite!

The WIT Network believes we need to start by creating room at the front-line manager table to reach a more balanced management team who will grow into future leaders and board members.

What is WOMANagement?

WOMANagement, by The WIT Network, is a new movement to foster equal and more diverse representation in our front-line manager teams in companies of all sizes.  By creating a new movement focused on women in management positions, we want to inspire followership of companies to leverage our WOMANagement programming within their organizations.

  • We want women to want to be a #WOMANager.
  • And those who already are – let’s celebrate them and encourage mentoring of the next WOMANagers!

We strive for companies to celebrate their women in management/leadership goals within their organization. It isn’t just about gender parity. It is about progress and creating a movement to bring awareness to the challenges.
