Our region has some of the best and brightest young women in the country, and we are proud to celebrate with you! As we enter into our fifth Affiliate year, we want to celebrate as many young women in computing and IT as possible.
Award recipients will be selected for your aptitude and interest in IT and computing, solid leadership ability, good academic history, and plans for post-secondary education.
In a global economy, gender diversity in computing and IT means a larger and more competitive workforce; in a world dependent on innovation, it means the ability to design programs and technology that are as broad and creative as the people it serves. We and our partners believe that diversity in innovation benefits all and are committed to doing our part to encourage all young women in our area to choose careers in computing and IT.
By generating visibility for capable technical young women, the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing encourages their continued interest in computing, attracts the attention and support of educational and corporate institutions, and emphasizes at a personal level the importance of women's participation in computing.
Representatives from the NMSU Department of Computer Science, the Young Women in Computing (YWiC) program, and the Center for Smart Grid Technologies will serve as the organizing committee. If you have any questions, would like us to visit your school, need flyers or informational brochures, don't hesitate to reach out and let us know. (575) 646-1901, mlangfor[@]nmsu.edu.
