Carolina Women+ in Tech
Our members encompass any person who identifies as female or non-binary that embraces the role that technology plays in their career, business, and life.
We will be offering many opportunities to network with other women+ in tech. We encourage one on one connecting as well as at our meetup events.
Our goal as a non profit is to fundraise to provide opportunities for education. Continuing education, bootcamps, scholarships, and grants.
The ultimate goal of this group is to empower each and every woman+ that values the role that technology plays in her life.
What We Do
We are Women+ in Tech
Our mission is to empower, engage, and educate women+ in tech. We have a unique opportunity to unite and support each other. We encourage any person that celebrates technology to join our effort.
Why Should You Join Us?
We are better together. We need each other. Bottomline – statistics show that we need more women+ in tech. The roles are lopsided, and our goal is to help provide a more even environment. We know that women+ led businesses perform better. We also know that we need more women+ in tech. Join us because we are better together.
Women account for only 20% of the bachelor’s degrees conferred in engineering, computer science, and physics.
Regardless of specific area of technology, only about 25% of these positions are held by women. (National Center for Educational Statistics)
And, while women represent almost half of the US workforce, just 5% are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and that number expands only slightly when looking at Fortune 1000 companies. (Pew Research)

Bruns STEM Elementary School (Charlotte)
Dottie Rose Foundation is hosting this event for 5th-grade girls during computer science week.
We are seeking donations from the CWIT community to sponsor 25 bling boxes for each girl at Bruns STEM Elementary, in addition to the day of volunteers (on-site).
This event will bring 300 girls "together" via zoom to learn, write and create with binary code.
Engage. Educate. Empower.
Let’s celebrate, support, and build each other up.
