    We hope you can join us for the kickoff HarvardWIT@HBS meeting on October 18 @3:00 pm in Batten 201 at HBS. At the meeting, Donna Tremonte will review the work and accomplishments of HarvardWIT over the past year, with a particular focus on a summer meeting with Harvard’s CIO Council. She will also talk about some of the work ahead for the group in FY18 and ways to get involved. Because WIT will have a couple of meetings on the HBS campus each year, we will also spend part of the time discussing what you all would like to see/experience at those meetings.
