*2 positions available
What is the Ambassador Team?
The IU Center of Excellence for Women in Technology (CEWiT) is the nation’s first and only university-wide initiative designed to encourage the participation, empowerment, and achievement of women in technology across all academic disciplines. CEWiT addresses the global need to increase the participation of women at all stages of their involvement in technology (from beginner to skilled) through education, skill development, mentoring, and community building. Technology opens up a world of opportunities for women and is a catalyst to success in all fields, disciplines, and careers. We are dedicated to empowering women to confidently use technology in an environment that fosters creativity and teamwork to benefit their educational and career goals.
The CEWiT Ambassador program seeks energetic and engaging undergraduate leaders who love technology and would like to share their enthusiasm with other students, particularly first and second year women at IU. The mission of this group is to help spark an interest in technology, share the benefits of having technical skills, and raise awareness of CEWiT, our programs, and our resources.
