Last Chance - Time is Running Out!

The WICT Philly Gives Back 2020 Virtual Fundraiser
Staying home doesn’t mean we can’t give back 😊

WICT Philly Gives Back is an award-winning fundraiser because "Giving Back Is Always In Style." This year, WICT Philly Gives Back will be hosting a 6-week virtual fundraiser and silent auction starting Monday, October 19th, 2020 through Friday, November 27th, 2020 to raise funds to support our local Girls Inc chapter.
We are honored to partner and support Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia & Southern NJ which is an organization that encourages young girls to be strong, smart, and bold while also emphasizing STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers.

While we can't all be together this year in person, we can still give back! We invite you to join us by participating in our online silent auction.

Check out the amazing items up for auction - along with EIGHTEEN virtual experiences & mentoring sessions donated by some of the top executives in the Telecommunications industry.

Brittany Rhodes in Detroit is giving back to her community with her love of math by helping young girls overcome math anxiety!
Brittany Rhodes is great at math and has always been good at it! A gradute in this field from Spelman, she started tutoring female algebra students in her community and realized they all struggled with basic mathematics.

After researching academic journals about black girls and math anxiety, Rhodes discovered that this was a pressing need in her community. “Math anxiety affects females and people of color more than it does the rest of the population,” she said. “Girls struggle when it comes to math and science. They tend to feel less confident than boys do, and that’s girls no matter what race. So you have this gender gap that already exists that we know and is well-documented, and then we have a very wide racial gap.”

And BOOM - Black Girl MATHgic was born! Each month, subscribers will receive a box containing a math lesson or activity, items to make the activity tangible (stickers, erasers, and more items that fit within the math theme), a profile of a black female mathematician, and an affirmation to boost self-confidence.
While her target audience is adolescent girls, Rhodes says that adults looking to purchase a subscription are more than welcome.

Meet Kira Chrysczanavicz: Senior Director, Finance Technology & Automation at Comcast!
What do you love most about your job?
My passion resides in that my team and I build new or automate existing manual business processes by transforming them with the latest technology. It is so rewarding to see our business partners appreciation when they have been struggling for years with particular practices or need a brand new process implementation and we are able to make these aspirations possible. I have the best team that any leader can ask for and working with them each day is a pleasure and blessing!

How have other women helped shape your career?
I have been very blessed to have tremendous, transparent, and extremely strong women in my professional and personal journey. The woman leaders, colleagues, and friends I am fortunate enough to walk with and under continue to cultivate and encourage me to find my own strength, perseverance and authenticity, all the while providing enlightening vantage points. Many of the lessons are tough, even at some times painful to navigate, yet even when I'd fall, there they would be collectively helping to uplift and challenging me on the future. I can only hope that through WICT and other networks we all find ourselves stretching to be that type of woman in our interactions. Because if you have great women in your pocket, you can move mountains.

Outside of work, what’s something you’re passionate about?
Outside of work I am a mother first, painter second, and writer third. I am very passionate about a novel I've been writing for years, and hope one day it can be shared!

What do you value most about your WICT membership?
I value our programming so very much, and to see the faces of our organization growing through each opportunity is inspiring. Life is hectic, and I recognize that I wouldn't take the time to seek out what WICT provides without this membership, reminders, and stellar content.
