Girls and women are underrepresented in information technology from secondary schools to corporate and academic leadership. Yet IT knowledge and skills are predicted to make major contributors to innovation for the foreseeable future. Women’s exclusion from the fast growing and high paying IT fields harms research, innovation, workforce, and women’s health and prosperity. The National Center for Women & IT (ncwit.org), a coalition of nearly 200 prominent organizations, builds capacity for women’s inclusion in IT. NCWIT conducts and gathers research on girls and women in IT and makes it accessible free in the form of easy-to-use resources. The presentation describes the research and rationale behind our Promising Practices, Programs in a Box, Talking Points, and other resources that enable teachers, teacher educators, informal educators, parents, and counselors to build awareness and improve teaching. Top quality professional resources will be provided to audience for free.
