Women in AV/IT (WAVIT) officially launched on Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2022. Founded by and for women, the group’s primary purpose is to strive for gender equality in the AV/IT industries and recruit and retain women in the industry.
We sat down with Amanda Eberle, one of the organization’s founders and general manager at AV Chicago, to get an exclusive look at the new organization and its plans.
LAVNCH [CODE]: How did the idea for Women in AV/IT come about?
AMANDA EBERLE: A group of like-minded and amazing women came together with the goal of elevating and empowering women in the AV and IT industries. Over the years, I’ve worked closely with each of the board members on various initiatives and projects, and I’m excited for all of us to be co-creating this new group together.
