2014 NCWIT Summit on Women and IT

2014 NCWIT Summit on Women and IT

Thanks to all of those who came prepared to leverage their efforts for encouraging more girls and women to pursue computing. The 2014 NCWIT Summit on Women and IT: practices and ideas to revolutionize computing took place at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa in Newport Beach, California from May 19-21, 2014.

The 2014 NCWIT Summit marked our 10th anniversary  — a time to recognize the significant accomplishments of our heroes and evangelists. Hundreds of change leaders from our community of educators, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and social scientists received research, ideas, and action items for increasing girls’ and women’s participation in computing.

"The strong camaraderie of folks with common interest and goals, and who are very open to sharing their experiences and expertise make this a very rewarding conference."
