Corporate Communities Work Team

This team connects affinity group leaders at NCWIT member companies for networking; practice-sharing; learning from experts; and volunteering/ outreach opportunities.

Currently, team members engage in three ways:

  1. Monthly newsletter - All Work Team members opt-in to receive a monthly newsletter including announcements about upcoming networking, engagement, and volunteerism opportunities. 
  2. Coffee Chats - Work Team members can join virtual, topic-based calls every few weeks to learn from and lean on one another. Each chat includes: 1) an NCWIT member highlight, 2) info on related NCWIT resources, and 3) Q&A.
  3. Resource Development Committee - This subgroup of Work Team volunteers is collaborating with NCWIT social scientists to create a new NCWIT resource for starting and sustaining an effective corporate affinity group to advance technical women.
