Leaders Gather for Chicago Summit on Women in Tech

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:39 am


This week, the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) held its annual Summit on Women and IT, an event that assembles industry leaders, educators, and members of government to focus on increasing women’s participation in technology and computing. The NCWIT Summit convenes stakeholders who believe the lack of women studying computing and pursuing careers in technology is a crisis affecting U.S. innovation and workforce competitiveness. Research shows that women hold just 25% of technology occupations, earn only 18% of computer science degrees, and are founders of fewer than 8% of tech startups.
