  • “We rethought the way we were writing job postings, based on NCWIT advice, and the result has been a noticeable increase in responses from female applicants.” ~ NCWIT Entrepreneurial Alliance Member Representative

We are grateful to work alongside you as we increase the influence and meaningful participation of all girls and women in the impactful field of computing, particularly in terms of innovation and development.
