The Women in IT program is an annual, national program targeted at teenage girls with the purpose of changing their perceptions about careers in IT. A national issue affecting the IT profession and industry is the low percentage of females in the profession as well as the declining enrolment of females in math, science, and computer science courses. CIPS created the Women in IT program to help address this issue as well as provide career information to high school girls across the country. We are currently looking for female volunteers with experience or training in the IT industry (or related technical fields), to assist on the day of the event.
