Thank you to our WIT Girls Sponsors
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.
Attend exclusive sessions featuring panels of professionals for a Career Exploration Workshop. As the next generation of female leaders, be inspired by the shared journeys, insights and lessons of current female leaders.
Immersion Experiences are an opportunity for WIT Girls to immerse themselves into a particular role to solve a problem or work as a part of a team. Get ready to immerse yourself in an Atlanta area company!
Young girls are provided with a glimpse of the day-to-day excitement a career in technology as they participate in the Job Shadow program. For one week each year, high school girls are paired with various career women in the technology field so they can learn what their future holds when they pursue an education and career in a STEAM field.
