National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT)

The National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT)
NCWIT works to correct the imbalance of gender diversity in technology and computing because gender diversity positively correlates with a larger workforce, better innovation and increased business performance. Increasing the number of women in technology and computing also has the potential to improve the design of products and services to better serve a more diverse population, and increase economic and social well-being by providing more women with stable and lucrative careers.
NCWIT, which is housed in the Roser ATLAS building, was co-founded by ATLAS along with Lucy Sanders, who has worked in R&D and executive positions at AT&T Bell Labs, Lucent Bell Labs and Avaya Labs.
