Why Community?

As you are probably aware, few women are entering technical fields, and, unfortunately, by mid career more than half of them leave. One way to increase the participation, retention, and advancement of technical women is to bring them together in supportive communities for professional growth and networking. Such communities build women’s collective strength and contribute to a positive change in culture.

Why Diversity

It is known that diversity increases innovation and competitiveness. With support from organizations like yours, CAPWIC will provide experiences that increase diversity and benefits of diversity will improve the computing industry.
