The first regional celebration of Women in Computing for the states of Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas (MINK WIC) was held October, 2011. It was a HUGE SUCCESS! We are updating our website with some great pictures of the event very soon.
This regional meeting, modeled after the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, brought together students, faculty, and technology leaders from across the four states to discuss the role of women in today's computing and technology fields to share experiences and strategies for success and explore issues common to women working in these fields. Specifically, the goal was to provide an opportunity for young women to explore opportunities in computing, to network with other women from academia, industry and government, and to create friendship among women in the region who share the same interest and passion for computing. This celebration was part of a nationwide effort to address the alarming decline of women choosing computer science professions.
