The winners of the 2014 Southern California NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing were recognized as some of the best and the brightest young women in Southern California. They were been selected for their computing and IT aptitude, leadership ability, academic history, and their plans for post-secondary education. We also recognized the 2014 Southern California Educator Award Winner, selected for encouraging students to continue their interest in computing and technology and promoting gender equity in computing.
There were 26 Aspirations in Computing Ambassadors joining us here at the 2014 NCWIT Summit, brought together as part of the Aspirations in Computing Community. Sponsored by Bloomberg, the AiC Community provides regional and virtual community activities for more than 2,300 technical young women nationwide including meet-ups, technical projects, career and technical skill-building webinars, access to internships, scholarships and more.
