Women Leading in Technology (WLiT) is a program of the Minnesota High Tech Association that works to promote, educate and empower women in technology across Minnesota. Our goal is to “Connect, Educate and Reach Back.”

Join us at one of our upcoming events. Learn more and register here. Interested in getting involved with WLiT? Please contact WLiT Chair Kim Skanson at kim_skanson@cargill.com


The WLiT program is open to both men and women interested in promoting, educating and empowering women in technology. WLiT works to provide a network for women in technology across industry, level and line of business. We believe that no one stands alone – and strive to create community through the networking and conversations at our quarterly events.


Quarterly events provide learning opportunities in technology, career development, as well as help to promote careers in technology. The WLiT community also partners with other non-profits to help bring not only the next generation of women leaders into the workplace but also, women returning to the workplace.

Reach Back

We believe in “reaching back” to support students studying STEM disciplines. With the help of the MHTA Foundation, WLiT funds an annual scholarship that is given to a female undergraduate student studying a STEM discipline.
