“WITI” stands for Women in the Industry. Our key focus is providing a confidential support system and a place for togetherness.
The WITI Group is a non-profit foundation that aims to provide mentorship as well as a safe haven for women in the hospitality industry who need financial or emotional support. Founded on the principle that we are stronger together; our members provide support to each other in both personal and professional manners. For the story behind the genesis of The WITI Group, read the founder’s article on the Be Bold Now website.
If you would like to join us to help others or if you or someone you know needs support, please contact us through the form below.
We support any woman in hospitality in need of financial, emotional or career assistance stemming from a work-related, hospitality-industry situation.
This charity is funded in part by The WITI Conference as well as donations made through this site.
The WITI Group is a 501(c)(3) organization.
