- WIT Symposium

In 2014, the Washington University Office of Technology Management (OTM) introduced the Women in Innovation and Technology (WIT) program to address the persistent under-representation of women in technology commercialization efforts. At the time of WIT’s inception, University Human Resources reported that 35% of University faculty were women. However, OTM estimated that female inventors submitted less than 5% of all invention disclosures at Washington University.
WIT educates women faculty on how to navigate the commercialization process, while also introducing various resources available within the St. Louis region.
