The mission of the NWCT is to provide opportunities to advance careers for professionals in Information Technology through education, mentoring, and networking. Founded in the 1980’s as the Network of Women in Computer Technology, the NWCT was forged by the female trailblazers at a time when no professional organizations existed in the city with a central-focus on women in tech. Eventually, as more and more areas of tech opened up to women in Philadelphia, the focus of the organization evolved from “computer” to all aspects of technology, and the name changed to the Network for Women with Careers in Technology. The NWCT provides quality networking and professional development events several times a year. Learn more about us here (http://www.nwct-phila.org/).
