Let’s take tech in the right direction to drive social change and close the employment, pay, and culture gap for women in technology.  This podcast is focused on helping turn ideas into action to create opportunities for women to advance in the dynamic technology industry.

As more and more businesses turn to the cloud to help drive their business transformation, we as technology professionals, need to look for ways to transform our skills.  Seizing this moment to skill-up is a tremendous opportunity for women in technology to attain high-valued cloud certifications and knowledge to position themselves for advancement.

To kick off our initiative, we are proud to announce our WiT CloudPower Scholarship for Azure Fundamentals Certification. We are offering 50 women scholarships for the Microsoft Azure Fundamentals training course, Exam Cram Session, Exam Prep, and Exam Voucher (valued at $950 per student). This course provides foundational level knowledge of cloud services and how those services are provided with Microsoft Azure. This is an excellent opportunity to start your pathway to becoming a Microsoft Certified Professional.
