National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) logo

The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) convenes, equips, and unites more than 1,600 change leader organizations nationwide to increase the influential and meaningful participation of girls and women—at the intersections of race/ethnicity, class, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, and other historically marginalized identities— in the field of computing, particularly in terms of innovation and development. Chartered in 2004 by the National Science Foundation, NCWIT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that creates a far greater impact than if institutions acted alone.

NCWIT expanded its Regional Initiatives to include Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in April 2022. With generous support from the Henry L. Hillman Foundation, NCWIT works with change leaders in education and industry in Pittsburgh to share opportunities and build infrastructure to increase the meaningful participation of a diverse range of women and girls in computing.

As part of the Regional Initiatives strategy, NCWIT works with the Pittsburgh Technology Council on supporting a regional coordinator to help lift up programmatic efforts as well as build relationships with those in the Pittsburgh technical ecosystem. Stephanie Weber is the Director of K12 and Regional Initiatives for the NCWIT. Stephanie leads all projects in the Pittsburgh region for NCWIT.
