Congratulations to the 2017 WIT Girl of the Year Elaine Wen!
The WIT Girl of the Year award was created in 2012 as part of WIT’s commitment to support the entire lifecycle of a woman’s career in technology, and is presented annually as part of the Women of the Year in Technology Awards.
The Girl of the Year has demonstrated a strong interest in science, technology, engineering or math, has been fully engaged in one or more WIT GIRLS programs for one year, is respectful and encouraging to others, is credited with exemplary performance in education and school citizenship, and has created a lasting and positive impression on a WIT GIRLS sponsoring host company and WIT member.
