- about us
Celebrate the season with AWT and colleagues from California’s tech community at our 2016 Annual Holiday Fundraiser supporting our annual scholarship awards!
Held at the beautiful Prego Ristorante in Irvine, this end-of-year celebration provides proceeds that are 100% distributed to our AWT Charitable Foundation, which awards annual scholarships to women studying at California colleges in pursuit of a career in technology. This year we awarded $65,000 to 13 deserving young women and we’re already working toward an even higher goal for 2017.
Since 2007, the AWT Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships to deserving young women. With your support we can continue to make a meaningful contribution to the education of women in technology!
In addition to attending, we invite your company to join us as a corporate sponsor. Not only is this an opportunity to extend your company’s visibility as an advocate for women in technology, but you will be playing a direct role in encouraging and cultivating the role of women in our industry’s future while networking with the AWT community of CIOs and technology executives from California’s top companies. Contact Susan Peck, AWT Director of Sponsorship at firstname.lastname@example.org.
100% of the profits generated by AWT from this event benefit the AWT Charitable Foundation, which awards annual scholarships to women studying at California colleges in pursuit of a career in technology. Since 2007, the AWT Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $137,000 in scholarships. With your support we are planning to provide an even greater contribution to the education of women in technology in the coming years!
