Established in 2013 by Mahtab Mirmomeni, (Master of Computer Science student at the University of Melbourne at the time) as Women In ICT, as of 2016 the club has re-branded itself to now be known as Women In Tech or WIT.
We are a club supporting and representing female students from all tech-related studies at the University of Melbourne. We’re a group of students from bachelors, masters, PhDs and diplomas! We come from all walks of Computer Science, Software Eng, Information Systems and more!
Our goal is to build an inspirational community to engage and support one another through our tech studies. We also provide networking, industry exposure and professional development opportunities.
1. To organise events encouraging more females into computer science.
2. To create a networking environment for females in computer science through the University.
3. To organise outreach programs for high school students to increase their interest in computer science and IT.
4. To organise collaboration and participation of female students with global events and industry.
