WPT Founders Circle

The Power of the WPT Founders Circle

WPT is fortunate to have a group of accomplished individuals and companies on its advisory board to form the Founders Circle. Each Founder provides fresh perspective, support and advice to ensure the growth and continued success of WPT.

  • Access and visibility to more than 15,000 Women Powering Technology members and partners globally
  • Ability to influence the WPT strategic direction as a member of the Founders’ Circle and elected WPT board representatives
  • Avenue for direct input and participation from all Founders’ Circle members
  • Additional visibility to membership by volunteering at chapter, national and global events and special projects
