Northwestern Women in Computing

Women in Computing (WiC) is a Northwestern community for women, non-binary, and trans-folk who are passionate about technology. We connect our members with professional opportunities and mentors, and help them develop technical and interpersonal skills through workshops and opportunities for leadership. These events help them foster a sense of belonging and solidarity, and leave them proud and excited to be women in tech.

Our members are eager to learn about career opportunities in tech and the technologies they’ll be using to build our future. Our 2016-2017 corporate sponsors include Google, IMC, and CME Group, and our partners range from Apple and Microsoft to Motorola to Braintree Payments. Partnering with our sponsors, we’ve hosted tech talks, panels, on-site visits, and roundtables, where industry representatives discuss everything from specific engineering roles to the exciting innovations that are pushing their industries forward.

WiC is the only women-focused technology group on campus. There exist few other opportunities for sponsors to both recruit talented candidates and support an important cause that is improving the tech community for all. With your support, we can hold more community-building internal events and extend our resources to girls at local high schools and middle schools. One event at a time, you’ll help us make the tech industry a more inclusive and welcoming community.
