As part of our continuing effort to offer learning opportunities in all areas relevant to our membership, ODTUG is pleased to announce the sixth annual Women in Technology Scholarship Program. We are looking for candidates to represent ODTUG and serve as role models and mentors to women in the technology industry.
The scholarship recipient will be awarded a complimentary pass to ODTUG Kscope20 in Boston, Massachusetts, June 28-July 2, 2020, and is expected to attend the conference. The recipient should also plan on participating in a WIT event at ODTUG Kscope20 on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 and should be interested in engaging with and promoting the WIT community.
Applications are due Friday, March 13, 2020.

ODTUG WIT Mentorship Program Announcement
We’re excited to introduce the WIT Mentorship Program, which will help foster connections between community members who are looking to boost their professional growth. This is a great chance to make a personal connection and learn the skills needed to take your career to the next level. The ODTUG WIT team will be pairing interested participants and providing a framework for the initial conversation. After that, it’s up to the mentors and mentees to determine a schedule and mode of communication that works best for them. The program will run in three-month increments, with the first round spanning April 1– June 30. If you are interested in signing up as either a mentor or mentee, please fill out this form. In order to participate in the April 1–June 30 timeframe, submissions must be received by March 24. Any submissions received after that date will be rolled over to begin in July. Once we receive your submission, we will follow up via email with more details.
