Mapping 2019 NCWIT Summit Breakouts to NCWIT Systemic Change Models

 

The NCWIT K-12 Systemic Change Model identifies several key social and structural factors that influence girls’ participation in computing, often deterring them from choosing education or careers in technology. With this model, you can heighten your awareness and knowledge about how young women’s perceptions, interests, confidence, and career decisions are shaped by society and the local environments in which they learn about computing and technology. Additionally, explore the different ways that you — as a teacher, counselor, researcher, or other critical influencer — can make change. Learn more about the K-12 Systemic Change Model at ncwit.org/thefactsgirls.

The NCWIT Postsecondary Systemic Change Model, used by NCWIT Extension Services (ES), recommends a strategic, sustainable approach for attracting and retaining women that focuses on revising educational systems to create an inclusive experience for all students. With this model, you can create awareness and knowledge about systemic change, as women often switch out of computing majors because they feel alienated, not because of their ability or suitability for the career. And, you can identify program aspects that influence women’s participation and explore the different ways that you can make change. Learn more about the Postsecondary Systemic Change Model at ncwit.org/postsec-model.

The NCWIT Industry Systemic Change Model identifies the key focus areas that should be part of a larger strategic plan for creating more inclusive and productive environments, such as examining processes and policies (e.g., in recruitment or performance evaluation) that deter women’s participation. This model underscores how isolated or piecemeal efforts are not enough for sustained change. Instead, you explore a holistic approach through three foundational steps that help to ensure the success of your subsequent efforts: 1) enlisting top leadership support, 2) educating managers, and 3) collecting appropriate data.
