Who We Are
ITWomen is a non-profit organization founded in 2002 by senior level women across technology industries. Through our partnerships with non-profits, universities, corporate sponsors and professional organizations, we strive to narrow the gender gap in technology and increase the potential for innovation and economic growth through gender equity.
Our programs help ignite a passion for technology in the next generation by reaching out to girls in middle school, high school, and college through Role Model Speakers and Scholarships. And our supportive network is there for our scholarship alumnae and our members for their professional development. ITWomen is a multi-generational organization which began in the South Florida tri-county areas of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach, and in 2016, has expanded with a presence in the greater Orlando and Tampa metro areas.
"We provide a fun environment; we play music, we play on the floor interacting with the robots - so we want them to make that association that IT is fun."
Increase the number of girls and women in the fields of technology and engineering and to provide professional development, student education and scholarships through a supportive network.
ITWomen accomplishes its mission through specific programs that allow professional women across technology to collaborate and empower each other in their career development. Each program and initiative addresses the ITWomen’s mission in a unique way and focuses on specific needs within its constituency.
