Arquette, who recently won an Oscar© for best actress for her work in the movie Boyhood, continues to make headlines about her passionate acceptance speech about equal rights for women. Arquette currently plays the leading role in the television series CSI:Cyber where she plays a Cyber psychologist who tracks and solves online illegal activity. WITI believes that Arquette’s passion for women’s equality and her other causes will help inspire all women worldwide to believe that they are unique and need to believe in themselves, their purpose, and the value they bring to others.
“WITI supports women worldwide in technology more than ever as they continue to leave tech in droves while facing challenges such as equal pay, recognition for their work, and promotions at executive levels,” explains Carolyn Leighton, WITI founder and chairwoman. We are excited to have such a diverse and acclaimed group of speakers who will share how they are not only “talking the talk” but are also “walking the walk” to overcome the obstacles and challenges they have and continue to face in their careers.”
The Annual Summit continues to bring together a diverse group of speakers, sponsors, partners, and attendees who want to empower, inspire, and build communities of professional, women in technology. WITI’s mission is to help women and men understand that advancing women is good for business, help women replace their anger and frustration with strategy, and replace competition with collaboration.
