Women in Technology Have More at Indiana University.
As was stated so eloquently on this blog:
"There is HAVING tech skills, and there is working in tech. These are VERY different things.
The former is very broad, the latter is comparatively narrow. When it comes to career planning, it’s crucial to understand the distinction. Too many people are opting not to learn tech skills, either because they don’t want to work in tech, or don’t think they can. But tech skills get you hired just about anywhere, NOT just “in tech.” it’s not just the software and mobile app startups that are searching for tech-savvy talent. Almost every company needs these kind of skilled people.”
Whether you already consider yourself a techie woman or you’re taking your first steps into the world of technology, the Center of Excellence for Women in Technology (CEWiT) is the place for you.
With CEWiT you can connect with other techie women at IU in our student, faculty, staff, and alumnae groups. And where you can find the tech pathways that will open the doors to the job of your dreams.
Techie women really do have more. And this is your proof.
CEWiT is seeking applications for a full-time staff position, Assistant Director of Cross-Alliance Initiatives.

“What we know is we cannot fully empower women and girls, unless we engage boys and men.” Those words were spoken on April 12 by Dr. Michael Kimmel, one of the world’s leading experts on men and masculinities, a featured TED Talk speaker, and the SUNY Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at Stony Brook University, when he presented Engaging Men for Gender Equality in the Whittenberger Auditorium at 7pm.
