NCWIT programs inspire and encourage individuals of all backgrounds, equip K-12 and higher education influencers with the necessary knowledge and resources to guide students, and foster virtual and in-person communities at local, regional, and national levels. Participate in a program to raise awareness, increase knowledge, and empower action year round.
Aspirations in Computing (AiC)
Aspirations in Computing (AiC) provides encouragement, enables persistence, opens doors, and changes lives for women in technology from K-12 through career. By offering exclusive awards, scholarships, internships, community, and more, AiC turns barriers into possibilities.
BridgeUP STEM provides opportunities for girls, women, and gender non-conforming individuals of all backgrounds to learn the skills of computer science and research methodology within a research university setting.
Color of Our Future
The Color of Our Future anchors NCWIT programs, initiatives, and research-based resources focused on broadening the meaningful participation of underrepresented women and girls of color (Black, Latinx, and Native American) to positively impact the future of computing.
Conversations for Change
Conversations for Change is an online thought leadership series that brings together educators, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, social scientists, and others to fully immerse themselves in research-based recommendations and peer-to-peer discussions to further inclusivity in computing.
Counselors for Computing (C4C)
Counselors for Computing (C4C) offers professional development to school counselors, providing them with essential knowledge and resources they can use to effectively guide ALL students as they explore computer science education and careers.
Higher Ed Programs
As our CEO Lucy Sanders once observed, “You can’t measure absence.” NCWIT has established several initiatives to help foster great potential that otherwise may have gone unrecognized, and to help foster great ideas that might never have come to fruition.
NCWIT Recognitions foster great potential that otherwise may have gone unrecognized, and foster great ideas that might never have come to fruition.
Regional Initiatives bundle and integrate NCWIT national programs within local communities. These programs serve as entry points into computing for women of diverse backgrounds, providing computing skill development, new employment opportunities, and more. Research shows that such longitudinal, community-based support is critical for increasing the participation and persistence of historically marginalized groups.
Sit With Me
Sit With Me (SWM) uses its iconic red chair to create in-person and virtual spaces where everyone can reflect on the value of diversity and inclusion. Having these conversations for change in a fun, creative way removes intimidation and allows challenges to be explored.
Tech Inclusion Journey
The Tech Inclusion Journey (TIJ)TM is a unique, scalable software platform that empowers change leaders in corporations and higher education institutions to implement systemic, sustainable approaches to the creation of inclusive cultures.
