The IMF Women in IT Employee Resource Group was formed in 2011 to address the issues of imbalanced gender representation within the IT function at the International Monetary Fund. In 2019 the group, which had become internally focused, was revitalized to seek action from the new CIO. Our guest speakers are the two Co-Chairs of IMF WIT.
