“Your STEM program equipped me with tools I can’t buy in a store, but tools I can use in life.”

The Women in Technology Project aims to generate best-practices models by working with world-class partners to create innovative programs or by customizing other successful programs to fit our STEM education to workforce needs.  The goal is to ensure that women and other underrepresented minorities have equal opportunity to be engaged and retained in science, technology, engineering and math fields.

WIT promotes gender equity by providing mentoring and internship programs for women in higher education. WIT also helps meet the needs of women entering or currently seeking other positions in the workplace by facilitating job placement, as well as training employers and labor unions on strategies to recruit and retain women in apprenticeships and non-traditional employment.

 The following “best practice” WIT programs are leading the way toward transforming students from passive learners into active global problem-solvers.
