Lack of diversity is an issue that stretches across disciplines and industries. Only by organizing and uniting our voices for change can we hope for systemic reform that fosters inclusivity for all.
NCWIT is a non-profit community of thousands of change leader organizations with the goal of increasing the influential and meaningful participation of girls and women from every community in the field of computing.
Computing permeates every aspect of our society. Yet, technological innovations are not developed by a population as diverse as its users.
Women hold the majority of all professional occupations, yet only a fraction of computing occupations. And, the gap is even wider when considering women of color.
As a society, we lose out on potential innovations when we do not have a diverse workforce fully participating in technology creation.
Because the idea you don’t have is the voice you haven’t heard. Inclusion changes what’s possible.
Women are not broken; men are not the enemy. The enemy is culture. We have the research and tools, and know what to do, we just need to do it.
Unquestionably, the will for change exists, but turning awareness into outcomes requires strategies for action. That’s why NCWIT is here. Let’s change what’s possible for women in tech, together.
Gender reform in the technology industry is not a “women’s issue,” it is a business issue that’s also about men.
Everyone has a role to play, and NCWIT is there to help you master the skills to lead change and reveal the potential in everyone.
