Twenty-five years ago, Carolyn Leighton founded Women in Technology International (WITI) to help women advance within their chosen technology-related fields. At the first WITI meeting, hosted by Sun Microsystems, meeting organizers expected around 50 women to attend. More than 250 women showed up, and the organization quickly grew from there to today's more than 167,000 members.

 In 1996, WITI established a Hall of Fame to recognize the contributions women have made to science and technology.  Some 98 women have been inducted into it. Here, in alphabetical order, is a look at some of the accomplishments of the five inductees being celebrated tonight at WITI’s Hall of Fame dinner and awards ceremony in Santa Clara, Calif.
