As an inclusive organization, WiC supports all interested in computing while promoting the success and advancement of women in the field. Having a dedicated space to support women pursuing computing has increased confidence in their technical ability and enjoyment in their chosen field of study, helped reduce feelings of isolation, dismissed common stereotypes, and empowered them
