Aspirations in Computing

Technology too often has a culture of invisibility, otherness, self-doubt, and closed doors. Our Aspirations in Computing (AiC) program’s exclusive awards, scholarships, internships, and community turn barriers into possibilities by building women’s leadership, technical, and entrepreneurial skills. High school students can participate in the annual local awards program and college students studying computing can join the Community directly. Faculty and employees can volunteer, and businesses can offer internships and jobs.
