WOMANagement Conference 2023 Videos

What is WOMANagement?

WOMANagement, by The WIT Network, is a 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. 

The WIT Network is pleased to present our new flagship WOMANagement programming to encourage more gender-focused management teams. 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.
