About WiT, Nottingham
We are a monthly meetup for women from all area’s of technology and those with an emerging interest in technology.
As we are celebrating the women in our industry, and not aiming to exclude, the event has a “Bring a Bloke” scheme, meaning each female attendee can bring one male friend if they want to. This keeps a female majority at all times.
