National Center for Women and Information Technology
NCWIT is a non-profit community that convenes, equips, and unites change leader organizations to increase the meaningful participation of all women — at the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, age, sexual orientation, and disability status — in the influential field of computing, particularly in terms of innovation and development.
Before NCWIT was chartered in 2004 by the National Science Foundation, programs focusing on women and computing existed mostly in isolation — without the benefit of shared best practices, effective resources, communication with others, or national reach. Today, these programs are part of the NCWIT community, creating a far greater impact than if institutions acted alone.
A number of organizations and initiatives currently support diversity, equity, and inclusion across data science, environmental science, and related fields through training, mentoring, and networking opportunities. This collection will provide links and descriptions of those organizations and/or initiatives to increase awareness among our members.
