WITonCampus focuses on supporting female students pursuing technology related degrees. By partnering with Wisconsin higher educational institutions, we provide opportunities to explore STEAM fields, network with female professionals, and establish connections with companies across the state.
- Professional Connections Program: Since expanding statewide in 2022, this program has matched over 60 female students, coming from fifteen different colleges, with female technology professionals. By receiving mentorship and guidance, these students are able to walk away with new knowledge and skills to help them along their career and educational journeys. These connections have led to numerous success stories, including internship and full time employment opportunities for our students.
- Campus Outreach: Let WIT come to you! Through our partnerships with Wisconsin higher education institutions, we love to make campus visits and help put on programming (either in-person or virtual). Opportunities are limitless, but in the past have included WIT participating in career fairs, panel discussions, skill development sessions (resume building, mock-interviews, etc.) and much more! Need professional(s) to speak at your event? Want to have professionals in the field come speak to your students? Let’s chat and see what we can make happen!
- LinkedIn Group: This group was created as a place for building connections between our female students and WIT Wisconsin community. Here students will find opportunities for mentorship, volunteering, professional development, and even internships with our sponsor companies. Join the group here, and be a part of the conversation! https://www.linkedin.com/groups/14201919/
