Our Purpose

NYU IT launched Women in Information Technology (WIT) to promote diverse career pathways, as well as to build and nurture a robust support network for female IT professionals at NYU.

Our Mission

To empower women who are working in IT-related professions at NYU, and to encourage them to reach their fullest professional and personal potential by pursuing University career opportunities, taking advantage of professional resources on campus, and employing industry best practices in their fields.

Our Goals

WIT seeks to fulfill its purpose and stay true to its mission as a professional support network for IT women professionals by:

  • Creating in-person networking opportunities and online events that attract and advance women who are in or wish to pursue an IT-related profession.
  • Hosting events that showcase female leaders in IT.
  • Fostering open dialogue about the unique challenges and issues women in technical fields face in today’s workplace.
  • Presenting information about opportunities for professional development that offer diverse pathways for growth, including workshops and training sessions.
  • Providing volunteering and mentoring opportunities with University partners in and outside the NYU community.

Beth is the Founder/Director of Tech Kids Unlimited, a technology not-for-profit program for special needs youth. She created Tech Kids Unlimited in 2009 to help her son, who learns differently, explore more about technology outside his school’s classroom.

Tech Kids Unlimited now serves over 350 students from ages 7 to 21 with autism spectrum, Aspergers, AD(H)D, OCD, learning, and social/emotional challenges. Tech Kids Unlimited empowers these students to develop job-applicable skills in graphic design, video editing, game development, and more.
