2016 NCWIT Summit on Women and IT

May 16, 2016 to May 18, 2016

There is still work to do in order to increase the meaningful participation of girls and women in computing, and the NCWIT Summit is designed to make the hard work ahead more feasible.

The 2016 NCWIT Summit convened hundreds of change leaders from our community of educators, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and social scientists to discuss research, ideas, and action items for narrowing the gap. Creating change for women in tech is not a job for one individual or one organization. Each year, the NCWIT Summit offers an environment for peers to learn, strategize, and celebrate as they work on this very important mission.

“The NCWIT Summit really is the best networking opportunity I have each year. The opportunities to brainstorm, collaborate and connect with peers are just fantastic.” ~ NCWIT Summit Attendee

We brought the NCWIT Flash Tank back! It’s NCWIT FlashTalks … in the Shark Tank.

We gave six change leaders from the NCWIT community five minutes each to give a FlashTalk on something NCWIT should prioritize in the areas of diversity, education, image, innovation, social movements, and more. This is your opportunity to tell us about that item on your wishlist -- “I really wish NCWIT had research on this,” or “It’d be awesome if NCWIT ran a campaign focused on this.”

And, the winner is...
