Women in IT

The CIPS NL Women in IT (WIT) event is an annual daylong conference targeting Grade 9 girls in the St. John’s and Corner Brook areas as prospective candidates for IT and technical careers. The event is usually held in early May.

The day’s activities will expose the participants to a wide range of careers and provide inspiration for their academic plans in addition to meeting female leaders and mentors working within the provincial IT Industry.  This will facilitate the added benefit of allowing the girls to identify with the speakers and to picture themselves as having the ability to be successful too.  As well, by bringing together participants from different schools, and gathering them at a college campus, the girls will have the opportunity to view themselves in a new context.

300 students in St. John’s and 100 students in Corner Brook will participate in the event along with teachers/chaperones.
