The Center for Women in Technology
The Center for Women Technology (CWIT) empowers and prepares our scholars to be change agents in creating technology workplaces that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
You’re invited to join CWIT, where you will:
- Receive mentorship from upper-class students, professors, and industry professionals in the computing and engineering communities;
- Participate in networking and other professional development events;

CWIT is closely aligned with the Cyber Scholars Program–interested students may apply to both.
