RIT’s Women In Technology program is dedicated and committed to creating platforms that energize, expand representation and strive to propel the success and advancement of women in the College of Engineering Technology and beyond. Growing, connecting, and inspiring is our motto. These achievements are created through:
Previous programs consisted of: Susan B. Anthony after school program, Girls Scouts, Workforce Innovation Day Careers on Demand Day, STEM school careers, Daisy Scouts, etc. Please, reach out, we are always looking for new way to connect with K-12 female identifying students.
An evolving community event, currently between the College of Engineering Technology and the K - 12 department. This community event showcases different areas of STEM through hands on demos. Female identifying students, staff and faculty members get the opportunity to impact and empower girls from 3rd - 12th grades. Students at this event get the opportunity to explore and learn more about STEM and RIT with their guardians for the day. This event aims to encourage, inform, and empower girls and women interested in STEM.
An overnight event designed by current WIT members; where female accepted students and their guardians come to campus to experience CET and RIT through WIT before making their final decision for college.
A college wide donation campaign for students, staff, and faculty to bring in snacks and household goods for the new teen center at Cameron Community Ministries for teens and kids to have a safe place to spend time after school working on homework and connecting with peers.
Networking and Career Prepping Connections
WIT offers students the opportunity to network with industry connections, and supports them by providing support and resources as they prepare for their careers.
WIT is more than a valuable academic resource for students. It is also a fun opportunity for them to connect and grow! We host a number of social events throughout the academic year. These events encourage students to step away from their coursework for a moment and come together.
