Chapters is a framework that includes a cluster of leading organizations that supports WiT in spreading its
roots across the country. These organizations invest in generating impact through various social and
technical initiatives with focus towards a common objective of increasing the women participation in STEM.
We have over 5 participants in the Chennai Chapter. These organizations will focus on different projects under
chapters based on the following pillars:
WiT in partnership with organizations provides programs to reach out to schools and colleges.
Companies engage with faculty, students and parents with focus to encourage and enhance more girls to join
STEM and technology domain. This is being done through specific education programs focused on generating
awareness in STEM subjects and through real-time experiential learning.
WiT Allies: WiT provides a platform for organizations to support upcoming talent across industry
through mentorship program to enable careers in STEM.
WiT Development Programs: It supports programs for women who are in early-mid career stage and
leadership positions. It aims to give them an opportunity to understand workplace challenges such as
work-life balance, stereotypes career advancement barriers, workplace harassment etc.
WiT in collaboration with organizations support in hiring and staffing of talented women in technology.
In order to shift the needle for gender-based hiring in STEM.
We conduct ‘career fairs’ with a focus on recruitment activities carried out by organizations.

collaborations to further the agenda of gender diversity across the industry .
