Women in Information Technology, Science and Engineering
IT-oLogy WISE (Women in Information Technology Science and Engineering) is a program dedicated to increasing the number of women in the IT talent pipeline. Through outreach, events and networking, WISE connects and engages the IT ecosystem promoting opportunity, creating visibility and interest in IT careers for girls, college women, and advancing women in the IT profession.
Outreach initiatives include annual scholarships to high school females planning to study in STEM disciplines, hosting the annual National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) NC and SC Aspirations in Computing Awards that recognizes girls in grades 9 – 12 for their outstanding accomplishments in IT, provides mentorship opportunities for middle school, high school and college females, and works closely with women’s groups in colleges/universities.
If you or your organization would like to demonstrate your leadership in advancing women in technology, consider sponsoring a future WISE event. Details here!
