Women are IT (WIT) has been encouraging women to choose IT as a career since it was cofounded in 1997 by Jenny Barbour, Madeleine Sanders, and Susan Coleman. We strive to raise the status of women in Australian business, particularly within the IT industry. In order to increase diversity in business, women and men need to work together. By initiating dialogue with leaders in the IT industry, WIT promotes diversity directly from the top. Organisations need to build a workplace culture that fosters opportunities for both men and women; success in cultivating such an environment will only happen if senior management embody those values.
