WIT // HSV’s mission is to support women who aim high and want to make an impact through technology, leadership and inspiration.
The three pillars of WIT//HSV are to encourage, empower and educate women working in the business and technical sectors of technology. WIT//HSV was created to help women transform their communities, rapidly advance their businesses and careers, and effectively overcome challenges using the tools, connections and resources provided by WIT//HSV.
WIT // HSV was founded by a committee of strong and influential women in the Huntsville community, including Saleemah Ahamed (Adherence), Dr. Kuan Collins (SAIC), Jackie Fendrock (Accenture), Dr. Valentina Iscaro (Alabama A&M University), Alice Lessmann (Signalink), Lisa Davis Mays (Catalyst), Angie Sandritter (Rippleworx), and Vergenia Shelton (Intuitive Search and Technology).

The launch event will feature plenty of networking opportunities, an exciting line-up of speakers from Accenture and the FBI, complimentary drinks and great food provided by Good Company Cafe. The launch event will combine the three pillars of WIT//HSV by providing a space to connect with other strong women in STEM career fields and hear valuable insights into the night’s main talking points – breaking the personal and professional barriers, owning your brand and voice, and increasing the impact of women in tech.
