At the White House Summit on Working Families on June 23, the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), a national non-profit focused on increasing women’s participation in computing and a supporter of CEWiT, announced an aggressive commitment to add 3,500 new technical women to the U.S. talent pool by 2016 through the NCWIT Pacesetters program.
Indiana University is a member of the NCWIT Pacesetters, which is a fast-track program in which senior executives from start-ups, corporations, universities, and government commit to increasing their numbers of technical women to address a significant national need. IU is committed to recruiting, retaining, and promoting women in technology, and the CEWiT mission aligns, in part, with the Pacesetters mission.
