JUMP INTO TECH

 

We want to flip the script and encourage more women to take advantage of the opportunities that exist in the IT field.

FLIP THE SCRIPT

FACT: Over 50% of the population in West Michigan is female.

 

FACT: Only 1 in 4 computing jobs in the region are held by women. 

WMTT connects and supports local employers, educators and community organizations to build a stronger, more diverse tech workforce. We want to flip the script and encourage more women to take advantage of the opportunities that exist in the IT field.

WOMEN IN TECH

We partnered with Ingalls Pictures to create a video that inspires women and girls in our community to consider a job in IT.

Check out the video to hear from local women working in a variety of IT positions discuss West Michigan's IT community and the importance of increasing the number of women in the industry.

JUMP IN - a great tech career awaits in West Michigan!

Thank you to the following organizations for joining WMTT in sponsoring this project and supporting women in tech:
