Our Mission and Goals


The ECWIT vision is to engage, empower and inspire women to pursue a career in information technology, math, science and engineering.  We aim to equip women with confidence, develop their leadership skills, and increase their network and knowledge about technology.

We set 4 goals to achieve our Mission:

  • Encourage students to pursue advanced degrees and careers in STEM fields and broaden the participation of minorities in those fields.
  • Expand the STEM-capable workforce and increase the participation of women and minorities in that workforce
  • Connect students to successful career women, recruiters, and mentors.
  • Increase STEM literacy for all students, including those who do not pursue STEM-related careers, by adopting awareness programs and providing workshops.

We will achieve our Mission by:

  • Leveraging existing CMU outreach programs and resources
  • Connect with internal and external partners to help grow our network and influence.
  • Increasing the pipeline by including young women in grades 6-12.
