    Importance of Women In Computing

    “I believe it is important to participate in WIC because of the many opportunities it can provide a woman. Being an active member in WIC can allow you to network with others that share the same passion. I value being a part of WIC because it allows me to promote women in technical fields, empower myself, and connect with faculty, staff, and other women on a professional and social level. In a field where women are still a large minority, I believe it is important to make a network through WIC.”

    Active Leaders in Society

    “It is very important to become active leaders in society, especially in this school. Often times, we as women’s leadership has been devalued by men because they view women who are strong leaders as dominating which relates to negative stereotypes of women. It would be great to network with women that have overcome this sort of stereotype.”

    Conquer Challenges

    “It is very valuable to network with other women especially in technology, given there are very few in the field. It helps in understanding various challenges, how to balance personal and professional life and what to expect in the professional world.”
