Harvard Women in Technology + Allies (HarvardWIT+, ca. 2013) is a staff-led, University-wide, volunteer organization that seeks to advance gender representation, engagement, and support in STEM and technology-related fields. A Task Force on Diversity and Inclusivity was formed in 2017 to develop actionable items towards recruiting, retaining and advancing people of diverse backgrounds in IT.
We are a part of Harvard University's ABCD Committee, an informal, University-wide association promoting communication and collaboration on technology-related topics across organizational boundaries.
