IAMCP WIT

At IAMCP WIT, we understand the challenges women face as they pursue careers in an industry that’s all too often dominated by male voices. Most of us have encountered barriers, some we’ve overcome and some are too big to address individually. Together, we’ve built a strong network of global communities where women can collaborate, support and empower each other to do amazing things that change the world. Supported by Microsoft and the IAMCP, we hope to inspire girls to dream of roles in technology and help women thrive in the industry, without doubting they belong there.
