    WIT Girls

Where future innovators connect with today’s technology leaders.

The statistics are alarming according to the National Science Foundation. America lags behind other nations in the number of students majoring in science and engineering at colleges and universities. To improve the statistic, WIT Girls collaborates with the Georgia business community to support and inspire girls in middle and high school to break through barriers and advance opportunities in the STEAM field by providing them hands-on experience and educational workshops that ignite an early interest in careers in STEAM.

Female students benefit from WIT Girls’ main programs: Career Exploration workshops, Immersion Experience and the Job Shadow Program. By collaborating with companies like The Coca-Cola Company, Fiserv, T-Mobile, Cox Automotive, Georgia Pacific, State Farm, Turner, SunTrust, IBM and others, and with educational/nonprofit organizations such as Ron Clark Academy, Georgia FIRST robotics, Junior Achievement, Atlanta-area schools and more, we are able to offer these events at no charge to the students.
