Our Foundation is dedicated to correcting the growing gender-disparity gap in IT. This ultimately strengthens Michigan and its companies by encouraging workplace diversity, innovation and competitiveness.
Our philanthropic arm serves as a source of support, educational programs and scholarships for Michigan's technologically oriented girls and women. We not only inspire the pursuit of technology careers, we provide programs to help women enter and stay in these fields.
To influence long-term change, we need to make an impact early in girls’ lives. We spark their interest through robotics programs, website design competitions and summer technology camps, and provide women with funds to pursue IT-related educations. We help them learn about and experience careers in IT, have fun with technology, get scholarships to pursue a technical career and gain visibility within the IT industry.
We launched the Foundation in 2002 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit after MCWT members shared their concerns about the limited number of women entering the technology field, and it’s been positively impacting women from grade school to post-university life stages ever since.
A portion of your membership dues and donations from our corporate partners enables us to continue making a difference.
