2024 NCWIT Summit on Women and IT

The 2024 NCWIT Summit will take place May 20–22, 2024, in Kansas City, MO at the Loews Kansas City Hotel. This year, the Summit will be in-person, with hybrid options available for online participation. Watch this space for more details! 

Where Conversations Lead to Change

With NCWIT being the trusted source for research-based strategies that facilitate reform in computing classes and technical organizations, the NCWIT Summit continues to be the world’s largest annual convening of change leaders focused on significantly improving diversity and equity in computing.

I always learn from both presenters and other attendees — either a new perspective on something I’m struggling with or a new idea about how to tackle different challenges. [NCWIT challenges] me to think differently and act differently… It’s also a very engaging conference; we don’t just sit back and listen, we work.


The 2024 NCWIT Summit will take place in Kansas City, MO at the Loews Kansas City Hotel. Please make your hotel reservations no later than April 26, when the discounted rate expires. The hotel is approximately 20 miles from Kansas City International Airport. Read more about the hotel and Kansas City.
