“While our event may look different this year, we are committed to championing trailblazers at this year’s Wonder Women Awards and thank our community and WiT’s generous sponsors and hands-on partners who have been incredibly supportive as we’ve needed to swiftly pivot our plans,” Genna Rosenberg and Jennifer Caveza, co-chairs, Wonder Women Awards say in a joint statement. “We look forward to sharing footage of the winners and honorees in a special tribute video, and also celebrate WiT’s 30th Anniversary at regional in-person events later in the year when it’s safer to do so.”
