As a result of growing health-related concerns, it is with regret but also the best interest of our community in mind that the WIT PGH Launch Party must be postponed to a later date. While WIT PGH’s larger and long term efforts for underrepresented groups across Pittsburgh and champion tech equity will not be curbed, we are sensitive to the situation and understand the need to prioritize health and safety at this time. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank everyone who was planning to attend and purchased a pre-sale ticket. While we hope some will consider these purchases a donation to our cause (and to help offset the burden of our sunk costs related to this event) we’re of course sensitive to everyone’s respective financial situations. As a result please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a refund. Requested refunds for all pre-sale tickets purchased will be honored and processed within 5-7 business days.
WIT PGH is a community of women, womxn, non-binary folks, and allies championing for the diverse and intersectional experience in tech. We aim for tech equity and advocacy through digital literacy and autonomy.
