NCWIT relies on engagement from members to develop resources, research projects, and platforms for change through participation on these teams. You will work with other members to develop strategic action plans for creating inclusive cultures, share lessons learned, and advise on development of new NCWIT resources. Teams meet quarterly so the time commitment to serve is not extensive.
Technology too often has a culture of invisibility, otherness, self-doubt, and closed doors. Our Aspirations in Computing (AiC) program’s exclusive awards, scholarships, internships, and community turn barriers into possibilities by building women’s leadership, technical, and entrepreneurial skills. High school students can participate in the annual local awards program and college students studying computing can join the Community directly. Faculty and employees can volunteer, and businesses can offer internships and jobs.
Join this team to put theory into action and to learn more about how to create sustainable systemic change in your organization. The team will work together to identify and collaborate on creative strategies in each area of the NCWIT Industry Change Model (pictured here).
