In 2015, WITT was formed by three SAIT School of Construction instructors to support women entering less-traditional career paths.

Today, it comprises over 100 industry professionals and SAIT community members who are committed inclusion champions.

WITT works with students, faculty and industry partners to create resources and opportunities for one another.

International Women's Day Conference

SAIT and WITT celebrate women's social, economic, cultural and political achievements with an annual conference on International Women's Day.

We have meaningful conversations with inspiring speakers from various industries and backgrounds throughout the day. These conversations are empowering, honest and thoughtful – motivating professionals and leaders to continue to strive for more equitable standards across sectors.

Oki, Âba wathtech, Danit'ada, Tawnshi, Hello.

SAIT is located on the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of Treaty 7 which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Îyârhe Nakoda of Bearspaw, Chiniki and Goodstoney.

We are situated in an area the Blackfoot tribes traditionally called Moh’kinsstis, where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. We now call it the city of Calgary, which is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
