    We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Sophia Wing, a long time WiTT member and most recently Enterprise Program Manager at BMI. Sophia was a friend and advocate for many in our community, and she will be greatly missed. To honor her memory, we have included remembrances of Sophia from her BMI colleagues and fellow WiTT members, Joy Mangrum and Theresa Zuckowsky.

    "Sophia and I became teammates at BMI in 2019 when we were hired within one month of each other. As newbies to the same team we quickly bonded over learning the ropes. We enjoyed attending the downtown WiTT networking events together and laughed every time we realized we knew the same person but somehow had not meet before. Her kind heart and clever wit were only trumped by her sweet tooth for European chocolates. Those who knew her can take some comfort in remembering the joy and laughter she brought each time she was near." - Theresa Zuckowsky

    "I had the privilege to meet Sophia several years ago at a WiTT event when we happen to sit at the same table for a topic discussion. We ended up talking for over an hour afterwards about everything and nothing that evening. Fast forward three years later at BMI, and I’m helping interview for a new hire and in walks Sophia for the interview. Needless to say, we hired her. She brought a smile with her every day and an enthusiasm in every endeavor. She mentored countless men and women throughout her career, and they speak so highly of her. She will be missed." - Joy Mangrum

    "Getting this scholarship was a huge lift of the financial burden for my family and me. The scholarship offer came at the right time as it encouraged me to pay the remaining outstanding balance quickly after getting a job."

    . . .

    Back in 2018 I joined Nashville Software school with the desire to change my career to a tech-based career. I was fortunate to get the Nashville opportunity tuition program through the school. This program allowed students to attend the school and pay the tuition fee after graduation with no interest. While I had two months left to graduate, I also received a scholarship through WITT (Women in Technology of Tennessee) which allowed me to pay 30% of my outstanding balance from the program. Getting this scholarship was a huge lift of the financial burden for my family and me. The scholarship offer came at the right time as it encouraged me to pay the remaining outstanding balance quickly after getting a job. I was also able to finish and accomplish my goal on time because of the scholarship I received from WITT.

    WiTT awards first annual $5,000 scholarship to Nashville high school graduating senior, Nyakuoth Jock, entering freshman at Lipscomb University

    For Immediate Release

    Nyakouth "Nya" Jock of Nashville has been awarded the first annual WiTT College Scholarship

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 6, 2020) – Today, Women in Technology of Tennessee (WiTT) announces the winner of its WiTT College Scholarship as RePublic High School graduating senior, Nyakuoth “Nya” Jock, of Nashville.

    Newly announced in spring 2020 with a sponsorship from UDig, the $5,000 scholarship was established to encourage more women to consider careers in technology and to bring more gender diversity to the industry. The WiTT College Scholarship is designated for a graduating female high school senior in the Nashville metro area who will be enrolling in college with the intent to pursue a career in a technology-related field.

    “WiTT is proud to support the educational and career advancement of more bright young women in technology with this new scholarship, and Nya’s commitment to academic excellence and community service make her a very deserving recipient for this award,” said Meg Chamblee, WiTT President.

    “Nya’s essay response also stood out for her maturity and vision, that technology, data, and science can meld together to improve people’s lives, and her career aspirations to fight infectious diseases are inspiring. WiTT is pleased to be able to support the next phase of Nya’s education as an incoming freshman this fall at Lipscomb University,” said Chamblee.

    Applicants submitted transcripts, a resume, a letter of recommendation, and an essay on why they are interested in technology, what problems they plan to solve using technology, and how the scholarship would help them achieve these goals.

    Jock was recommended by Mehreen Butt, her AP Computer Science teacher at RePublic High School and Academic Dean of Instruction, who explained that even though she did not initially care for coding, Jock eventually excelled in it, to include proficiency with back-end and Java coding, due to her work ethic and passion for learning.

    “Nya wants to pursue a STEM major and future career because she wants to help fix the pipeline of women, especially women of color, in science. This scholarship provides one of our brightest students with much-deserved support as she pursues her college education, where I’m confident Nya will continue to flourish as both an academic leader and an important contributor to her community,” said Butt. “WiTT has a worthy mission to advance more women in tech, and I am honored they recognized one of our students as the first recipient of this important, new scholarship.”

    The WiTT College Scholarship is made possible through a sponsorship by UDig, a technology consulting firm with expertise in software development, data platforms and analytics, which expanded to Nashville earlier this year from Richmond, Virginia.

    To date, WiTT has awarded over $200,000 in scholarship opportunities to help high school and college girls, as well as women returning to school, succeed in technology-related fields. For more information about this and other scholarships, visit the WiTT website.

    When is the Right Time to Invest in Data Science and AI for My Business?

    Data Science and AI technologies are becoming ubiquitous across many industries, but businesses are slow to see benefits from investing in data science teams.

Has this changed in the past year? What are the obstacles for adoption of data science and AI, and how do you know when is the right time to invest, if at all? We’ll explore some of the opportunities and obstacles to building data science at your organization and discuss strategies to overcome these obstacles.

    WiTT’s mission is to promote all women in technology, regardless of race or national origin. In Middle Tennessee, 36% of tech workers are women, while only 10% of tech workers are Black or African American.

    We have been running this program at Lipscomb University and MTSU for 3 years and extremely proud that it has grown significantly this fall!  When we started, we had an average of 12 mentees in the program and excited to report that it has grown to 30 this fall!  We also have had an astounding response from our WiTT Community to volunteer as Mentors! 

    I just wanted to say thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers for taking the time to provide your invaluable talents and experiences to help these young ladies in their career paths. 

    I also want to thank my Outreach Team who has lead these two programs and made this possible (Emilie Francis, Brittany Reeves, and Ruth Smith)!  We couldn’t have done it without you!

    November 7th dinner will celebrate progress with area women in tech positions and leadership, over $200K awarded in scholarships

    For Immediate Release

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 29, 2019) - On November 7, 2019, Women in Technology of Tennessee (WiTT) will host its 20 Years of WiTT Benefit Dinner at Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) Nashville headquarters from 5-8 p.m.

    Co-hosted by two of WiTT’s original founders, Tracy Evers, regional sales manager at Check Point Software Technologies, and Theresa Zuckowsky, enterprise program manager at BMI, the evening will also feature retrospectives from other prominent IT professionals and leaders with the organization and from throughout the community.

    WiTT was founded in 1999 because several Nashville-area women working in technology roles each found themselves as “the only woman in the room” at board meetings, entire divisions or companies, and they sought more camaraderie and support. Less than 10 women comprised the individual meetings, but the group formalized around four pillars of focus, which remain unchanged since the group’s inception: education for its members, to establish a sense of community and support for the women in tech roles in the area, outreach to inform students at varying ages about the possibilities in tech, and scholarships to encourage more women to enter the field.

    “The pillars we established 20 years ago are still very relevant today,” said Zuckowsky. “Organizations are increasingly recognizing that they will not be as successful if they don’t get in front of the diversity and inclusion effort, which dovetails into the fiber of what WiTT was founded to address.”

    During Zuckowsky’s term as president during 2005-2008, STEM was becoming more popular, and she expanded WiTT’s focus to recognize more of the sciences. “We needed to extend into medical and other fields, because technical roles are found in a wide variety of industries, not unlike how Nashville is an emerging tech hub, but we have historically been more known for the entertainment and health care industries.”

    The tech workforce and availability of tech jobs in Middle Tennessee is reflective of the recent and burgeoning growth of the Nashville metro area, according to Dr. Amy Harris, Associate Professor of Information Systems & Analytics at Middle Tennessee State University and WiTT board member who authored the State of Middle Tennessee Tech 2019 workforce report. The report similarly focuses on a broader definition of “tech workforce,” to encompass not only traditional tech occupations, but also analytics occupations that lie at the intersection of tech, business and mathematics. 2001 to 2018 marked an 88% growth in technical jobs in the 15-county radius, from 26,275 technical jobs to 49,465, with the last five years accounting for 34% of that growth.

    According to another recent study, women only hold about 20% of tech roles in the U.S., despite making up more than half of the workforce. Girls become interested in STEM at around age 11 but lose interest by 15, with the study citing lack of female mentors and gender inequality in STEM jobs as the main contributing factors.

    “Our work is more important now than ever before,” said Penny Grogan, former WiTT president (2013-2014) and a business development manager for C Spire. “Each former president focused on building out certain aspects of WiTT’s mission. During my tenure, we focused on strengthening our exposure to the business community and expanding our scholarships to encourage more young women to enter the field as well as to help women transition into technology careers for leadership advancements and financial independence. With continual technology advances reaching every part of our lives, women hold a valuable perspective for the enrichment of those advances.”

    To-date, WiTT has awarded over $200,000 in scholarships to 86 recipients, some of whom will be featured during the November 7 event festivities.

    During the tenure of past-president Barbara Webb (2010-2012), a telecommunications veteran, she focused heavily on recruitment and decided to enlist male membership as well.

    “I became aware of just how important it was to have their buy-in, because most of the leadership in the organizations we were working for were men,” Webb said. “We needed for them to know why it was important to send their female employees, and at the same time, we needed male leaders as advocates if we were going to drive institutional change in our community and throughout all of the various industries that employ tech workers.”

    “There is still much work to be done to advance women in tech in the Middle Tennessee area and beyond,” said current WiTT president and Director of Talent Acquisition for the iLOB Group with HCA Healthcare, Marla Lamont. “But we want to acknowledge and honor the work of everyone who has come before us, forming and growing this special organization to the level of success it now enjoys. The anniversary event will be an evening of celebration, with each speaker sharing meaningful stories about how their lives and careers have been impacted by WiTT.”
