Encouraging Women in Technology

Women in Tech (WiT) is an initiative encouraging Women in Technology. This initiative was established in September 2020 to provide educational opportunities to women in the technology industry. The College of Business is spearheading this initiative. Through the generous philanthropy of Maureen T. Mullarkey-Miller ’88 MBA and Steven Miller, this fund aims to encourage and advance women in business through a broad range of co-curricular and extracurricular activities in an effort to broaden the participation of this underrepresented population in technology careers. Advancing women in technology leadership positions is central to this initiative.

Join us for a WiT Roundtable Discussion

As part of our vision to provide leadership, programming and support to improve the representation and broaden the participation of women in the technology field, we are excited to host the Women in Tech Roundtable on April 19, 2024, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium. All are welcome to learn and network with leaders in the tech industry!
