UGA Women in Information Technology

The University of Georgia Women in Information Technology program is an avenue to increase communication and collaboration between all UGA IT Professionals. 

Statistics show women are a minority in the Information Technology field.  Since the 1990's, the number of women in IT has decreased by half. 

The purpose of this program is to proactively support and foster collaboration on best practices for the effective recruitment, retention and advancement of women in IT.  All genders are welcome and coaches, mentors, allies and sponsors needed.
