Dr.s Tisha Brown-Gaines and Andrew Miller, faculty members in the math and computer science department, participated in the annual National Center for Women and Information Technology Summit that took place on May 14-16 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville.
The NCWIT Summit is the world’s largest annual convening of change leaders focused on significantly improving diversity and inclusion in computing. Educators, entrepreneurs, corporate executives and social scientists from across industries and disciplines participate in this one-of-a-kind opportunity.
NCWIT is the trusted source for research-based strategies that facilitate reform in computing classes and technical organizations; the Summit sets the stage for NCWIT member representatives, notable field experts and renowned guests to present and learn about leading-edge practices, to network and form partnerships, and to provide encouragement and inspiration for one another.
NCWIT is a non-profit community that convenes, equips and unites change leader organizations to increase the meaningful participation of all women — at the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, age, sexual orientation and disability status — in the influential field of computing, particularly in terms of innovation and development. Next year’s conference will be held in Detroit, Michigan.
