About Women In Technology

Women in Technology (WIT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the underrepresentation and challenges women and girls face in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math). WIT empowers women and girls to excel from the classroom to the boardroom by providing education, exposure, and experience. Our programs are designed to ensure a diverse tech talent pipeline, challenge stereotypes, and bring about significant change in the industry.

By sharing the stories of successful professionals across STEAM fields, we inspire all generations of girls and women to shape their futures.

30+ Years of Women in Technology


  • “I have had the pleasure of being a part of the WIT community for about 5 years now, since my undergraduate days. From simply being a member to leader to scholarship winner within the organization, my experience has been nothing short of amazing. WIT has opened doors for women in the STEAM space in ways that I had no clue existed.

    Personally, WIT helped launch my career in the Cybersecurity industry straight out of university. If I had not been engaged and met the women/mentors that i did, I would have never come across the opportunity. Mentorship, networking opportunities, professional and academic development provided by WIT completely transformed my transition to the field. This organization truly cares and put in the time, resources, and energy to see women succeed in STEAM fields and they do so on a personal level with individual members. It is an inspirational and life changing experience working with them.”

  • WIT is an inspirational non-profit that helps support women of all ages to be successful. I’ve become very passionate about the organization because of the leaders and women who tirelessly devote their time to building one another up. I highly recommend any women, of any age, in any stage of their career to get involved. If anything other than finding a united community of like-minded folks, it is worth a visit.”

    • Lily Payne, WIT YoPros Volunteer
  • I have been associated with Women In Technology as a high school student for the past 4 years. This has been one of my most cherished institutions since it has taught me a lot, both professionally and personally.

    I have built a strong professional network at WIT, and it has enabled me to get real-world work experience during several job shadow programs, as well as at various events that I have participated in as a Member and as an Ambassador. I highly recommend WIT to any and every high school girl whether or not she is interested in technology, as WIT exposure will open up a new horizon for any impressionable mind, be it a middle schooler, high schooler, or a college student.”

    • Zareenah Ahmed, WIT Girl
  • “I’ve been a volunteer with Women in Technology for over ten years in various capacities, mostly with the WIT Girls Program. During this time, I have been able to empower women and girls in STEAM. Additionally, my leadership skills have grown tremendously which helps me to be a better leader and team member at work and the community. Being a part of WIT means having a large support system in all that I do and I am proud to be a part of a phenomenal organization.

    • Carrisa Jones, WIT Girls Volunteer
  • “I couldn’t even begin to describe how much this organization means to me and how my life changed within a less than a year. I went from unemployed and unhappy to having an amazing new career thanks to the single mothers program. I have involved in my personal and professional life. My job is truly a blessing and because of the program I connected to so many people and organizations to continue my growth. Me and my daughter couldn’t have found out about the single’s mother program at the right time.”
