What We Do

Inspiring the women of tomorrow, today. Our vision is simple: Make Michigan the #1 state for women in Information Technology. From girls' GET-IT Clubs to youth summer camps to college scholarships, every day we work toward our mission to inspire and grow women in technology. A diverse IT workforce is a vital part of Michigan’s transformation and we strive to engage and retain female professionals here. In our network, you’ll meet executives, students, business owners, entrepreneurs and others dedicated to a thriving technology community. Through mentoring, leadership development, networking, and technology experiences for all career cycles—from youth summer camps, to college and graduate school scholarships, to professional networking events, and more—we are inspiring and nurturing technologically oriented women. What began in 2000 as a career-focused group for women in the field has since evolved into a multi-faceted philanthropic organization committed to engaging current and future technology leaders. Everything we do centers on inspiring and growing women in technology. MCWT is on a mission to help women consider, advance and stay in IT. We work to broadly reach young girls to get them to consider technology and deeply connect with women who choose the IT path. Since 2002, we’ve been expanding our reach, mainstreaming IT, and positively impacting women from grade school to post-university life stages.
