Wells Fargo’s Women in Technology global advocacy program launched the Sit With Me program in July 2022 at their Charlotte, North Carolina location. To date, Wells Fargo has held over 15 events across 9 locations in both the US and India. The program has been a huge success to move the needle forward with creating open, honest, and meaningful relationships across every level of the organization by empowering over 1,000 women and women allies to sit in the iconic red chair to share their story. Wells Fargo is proud to partner with NCWIT to continue the Sit With Me movement as the program continues to gain momentum within Women in Technology and across the enterprise.

This event, hosted by Priyanka Malisetti and special guest Wells Fargo Head of Technology, Tracy Kerrins, drew an astounding 450 participants. The theme of the event was “Dear 20 Something Year Old Me,” allowing attendees to reflect and reminisce about their career trajectories. The celebrated ‘red chair’ remained a highlight as people gathered to share emotions and inspiring stories that bolstered attendees with positivity and invigorated their work moving forward. The feedback received was amazing. Special guest, Tracy Kerrins said, “I saw and heard the candid stories and authentic feelings that elevate the connections we form with each other. Those connections not only allow us to know our colleagues and ourselves better; they add to the open and inclusive environment that we’re building in Technology and at Wells Fargo. And in such a welcoming environment, that’s where we can grow, personally and professionally.”
