Programs

Everything we do centers on inspring and growing women in technology. MCWT is on a mission to help women consider, advance and stay in IT. We work to broadly reach young girls to get them to consider technology and deeply connecting with women who choose the IT path.

We do this in two ways:

  • Spark students' interest in IT through robotics, website design competitions, summer tech
    camps and more 
  • Engage 700-plus members through eLearning, professional development events, networking
    and mentoring

This work allows us to not only create a steady stream of women ready to enter the technology workforce but also supports them throughout their professional life.

To influence long-term change, we need to make a impact early in girls' lives. 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.

Since 2002, we've been expanding our reach, mainstreaming IT, and positively impacting women from grade school to post-unversity life stages.

A portion of your membership dues and donations from our corporate partners enables us to continue the momentum.
