Black Women in Technology (B-WiT) SIG Lead Student Intern

What is a SIG?

CEWiT Special Interest Groups (SIGs) nurture the growing diversity in our organization by providing "micro" communities where members can network and build technology awareness and skills in focused areas of common interest. They provide a place of engagement that provides professional development and social fun. Active SIGs identify and address member interests, issues and concerns. Ideally, SIGs will allow students to create programs and activities to further their common interests and can include such things as info sessions, career information speakers, how-to workshops, competitions, outreach, and targeted/focused events. Members range from highly experienced to no knowledge at all but interested in learning. Members can be comprised of students from all majors and levels, as well as faculty, staff and CEWiT alumnae affiliates.
